11 lpm vs 16 lpm

Wife wants more water flow for the shower.
Currently have 11 lpm water pump - looking at upgrading to 16 lpm.
Any issues? Pressures look the same.

make sure at those same pressures the velocities will be sufficient in the size lines you currently have. Smaller lines mean more back PRESSURE but not necessarily more flow.

Keep the pump, replace the wife. Less pressure.

Check the shower head. Changing to a higher flow head might be all that is needed. Changing to a lower flow head might provide a higher water velocity, which might be what she really wants.

Love it. Very uncharitable, but very funny.
