Its high pressure water, like about many thousands PSI, and its a tiny looking nozzle. And there is a grit like stuff mixed in, I think its finer than sandblast grit.
The laser cutters are extremely concentrated light beam. Sort of like those little flashlights that our grandsons play with, but much much more powerful, and damn dangerous in the wrong hands.

The waterjet thing is in a big dirty tank, its hard to describe, I did look down inside it, but I couldnt see much. The nozzle is under the surface of the water, from what I could see. They were showing me the finished parts that they had made with the thing, very impressive, and very quick.
Next time Im over there, I will pay more attention to it.

Crushed Garnet is/was most commonly used abrasive in Water jet...of course that a a few years ago, could have changed since then.

Back when I was quoting outside services for Water, Laser or Wire, Water jet was the least accurate but no heat effected zone was a considerable aspect. Was talking to a friend the other day and said he's quoting 12" thick Steel, Waterjet with damn good accuracy, that is simply amazing.

I remember Waterjet cut at 4" thick in 316 SST or Monel 400 having a kerf of 1/4" at the bottom, not anymore!

Not the maroon square one, but it looks like the whole room is wall to wall carpeting. Or is your concrete floor painted some type of paisley color?

Nothing fancy, and that was the plan. The stairs to the main floor are just to the left, that door is left open, and there's a cold air return back to the right, cycles nicely.
