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.

What I really think you are suggesting is that people will use whatever they can get, so rather than conserving water, if they are able to get 4 gpm through the shower head, they will use it, if not, they will use what they can get.

Intentional Restriction

In contrast yet maintaining optimum availailabe pressure thus quieter operation, installed new Shurflo Revolution 3GPM pump with "quiet hose kit" with a larger inner diameter, extra restricted flow washers to lav sink and Oxygenics 26481 shower head.

Resulting in less water waste in use, feel of a quality shower while making most of available GPM with less cycling demands.

Water saved is you own especially when boondocking.
