Although many of your thoughts, taken separately and literally, may be true (and rather obvious . . . ), you may have missed the gist of what I was getting at:

. . . that a 2 GPM pump (vs. a 4 GPM pump), together with concerted efforts to conserve water, will result in one's fresh water tank lasting longer (even "twice" as long).

A shift of awareness, that's all.

If you don't get it, that is fine . . .

FYI my hand-held Delta shower head is rated at 2.5 GPM, and I assume the the outdoor shower is at least 1 GPM, the bath faucet 1 GPM, and the galley faucet about 2 GPM, for a combined total of 6.5 GPM. Reducing the pump size from 4 GPM to 2 GPM will thus force multiple concurrent users to make-do with a lower water flow, or make other accommodations, resulting in water conservation IMO.

Is there such thing as a silent water pump?

To quiet the water pump remove it at place an old mouse pad under it and remount it loosely. There is a screw on the front of the pumps for pressure regulation. It's on the pressure switch. If it cycles to often adjust it one way or the other to change the cycle.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

I chose America
