    What is a word for the sound of shower?

    What is a word for the sound of shower? Can I use "splash"?

    I woke up to the splash of the shower late at night. My wife was humming to herself in the shower.

    How about: I woke up late at night to the sound of my wife humming in the shower.

    Because:

    - Readers will know she was humming to herself.

    - Sound is fine. If the splash woke you, you got wet.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
