As for you garden hose idea, I wouldn't do it. A garden hose will get water everywhere with the high pressure you are talking about. It will splatter off the tile. Is EVERYTHING in your bathroom waterproof? The vanity cabinet? The vanity will wick the water up and be ruined in no time. Any drywall or wood trim in this bathroom? I don't see this being a good idea.
The ENTIRE bathroom is tiled/fiberglassed except the ceiling.
I will be patching the hole, so no worries.
There is no vanity because the bathroom is wheelchair accessible.
The sink is hung on a tiled shelf sticking out of the wall.
Waiting on an adapter that I ordered online.
If it works, I will post pictures.

Hey, don't let imagination go into overdrive, I will not be using HIGH pressure, just a means of rinsing the floor.
I will be using a floor squeegee to push the water toward the shower.
The entire floor is already designed to MOVE the water in that direction.
This is a fully ADA wheelchair accessible bathroom, guys.

That's pretty much exactly what I am trying to do.
The difference is, this used to be TWO bathrooms back to back, we turned it into one LARGE wheelchair accessible bathroom.
The two toilets were back to back separated by the wall, so the toilet connection in the shower area is where the OLD toilet USED to be, so I am basically just hooking up the hose to the old toilet connection...and using a MUCH MUCH longer hose.
This is a HUGE bathroom, it's bigger than some apartments.
The two old bathrooms were already pretty big.

I'm pretty sure the thread is different. Plus he needs a longer hose than what comes with a shower head.

The entire bathroom was designed to be waterproofed, INCLUDING under the floor tile in the commode area, because it's the same tile throughout, with a waterproof shield laid down underneath before the tile was laid.
The walls are marble tile and the outside walls in the commode area are fiberglass with texture applied.
We just finished everything, still have to install baseboard pieces where the fiberglass meets the floor tile, but that's a small quick job and will be done before I do ANY cleaning/spraying, etc.
There is NO 'vanity' in the traditional sense, it's just a tiled shelf sticking out of the wall with the sink installed...it was done that way so she can drive her chair UNDER the sink for ease of access purposes.

The entire floor was "sloped" for water drainage purposes.
Given a few hours, the water DOES eventually make it to the shower drain WITHOUT using a hose, but that's a very slow process.
INSIDE the actual shower it drains very quickly because the slope is graded even more.

We copied the basic design idea from the VA hospital bathrooms that they have in patient rooms, so this is more an "industrial" design than residential, except that we used prettier tile and marble instead of industrial tile like the VA uses.
