Hi

Could you please tell me if the word hard collocates well with splash of water? Or could you offer me a better word?

I heard the hard splash of shower in the washroom and I naturally assumed Kevin was inside.

Thanks,

Tom

It doesn't sound very natural to me.

If you mean you heard the water coming out of the tap, say eg I heard water running in the washroom . . .

Mr. TomI heard the hard splash of shower in the washroom and I naturally assumed Kevin was inside.

I heard the steady splatter of the shower in the bathroom, and I naturally assumed Kevin was inside. (my American English version)

It is. However, althought I don't know the plot of your text, your sentence do seem a little odd logically. Try using a more explicit language to help enhance reader's understanding of your sentence.

"hard spash of shower" doesn't really seem to be connected to Kevin
