    Flow rate at a shower

    I'm sure this is a basic, but I can't get my head around it right now. I'm trying to work out what sort of flow I can offer a customer in a retrofit situation. I'd like to be able to say 'option 1 will give you x litres per minute' (stated x being slightly lower than calculated, just in case).
