Not necessarily. Maybe someone here has worked in the industry or has expert knowledge of it.

Not really; there must be an objective set of reasons as to why people don't make these hybrid drills. Extra complexity increases price perhaps?

comment What factors need to be considered to get the most powerful shower possible?
High pressure would translate itself into high water velocity (if the water's egress was restricted enough), that's my point. All that matters in how massaging the shower feels is how much kinetic energy there is in the water coming from the showerhead to your body. That's why I say water velocity is what matters.

2.5gpm is, I assume, 2.5 US gallons per minute. Does that mean you guys aren't allowed showers that put out more than 10 litres per minute?! That's really feeble. :-) Water efficiency gets on my nerves. I mean it's not like you have a shower for very long, anyway...

@UNECS Would you agree that it is the water velocity that matters the most as to how powerful and massaging the shower feels?

@bcworkz Well that sucks. Is there a way to tell which showers/shower heads are going to give the highest water velocity and flow rate?

When I say high-pressure, I mean the shower is connected directly to the mains and not a water tank. As for water velocity: if it is within the scope of the mains, that would mean you could not change water velocity yourself. But if you take a hose, turn the tap on full, then cover part of the nozzle, the water will come out with a higher velocity, yes?

Why do you say that water velocity isn't something I need to concern myself with? Don't you agree that this is probably the most important thing in how "powerful" and "massaging" the shower feels? You can have a high flow rate but with slow water velocity, it will feel weak.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal in the UK to attach a booster pump to the water supply, as anywhere you look it always says you must not attach a pump to a high-pressure system - I suspect this is purely for legal reasons, but I wanted to check whether there was any technical reason. Nobody ever gives you a straight answer on this one. :-)
