According to trade paper Variety, the Drowning Pool "title derives from an offbeat and exciting climactic sequence in an abandoned mental asylum hydro-therapy room". See more
When the fire hose is used in the hydrotherapy room, Mavis is initially left propped up unconscious in the corner while Harper is hosed down and struggles to get up. Once Mavis is hosed, she becomes conscious. The hosing stops, a short conversation ensures, and then the hose is turned on Harper again. During this scene Mavis is briefly shown as she was initially, unconscious and propped in the corner. This segment was clearly the continuation of the initial segment before Mavis was hosed. See more
