Thinking of a restrictive pipe as an analogy of a resistor, which converts electrical energy to heat,
would a pipe demonstrate a rise in temperature related to the loss of energy in the water, . (theoretically - and assuming conditions which did not have other influences - so water at ambient temperature etc etc.)

One of those early morning, semi asleep - brain thinking about random things - questions)

The pipe converts energy stored in pressure to heat - that heats the pipe and the water. The second part has no really analogon in electric circuits.
