    You need to make at least on assumption. The water is exiting through out the pipe into the atmosphere with a gauge pressure of 0.0 bar. With this information you calculate the exit velocity using Bernoulli's equation. Knowing the velocity and the diameter of the pipe you can calculate the volume / mass flow rate of the water.
