Could one get pregnant when masturbating in the shower? For instance by spraying a powerful force of water up one's vagina? Could sperm live that long?

Do you mean you're worried that doing that may shoot up leftover sperm into your uterus and get you pregnant? How long was the gap between the masterbation and the sex?

Sperm does not live very long in the vagina. Unless it makes it to the uterus, one day is average. And no, it is unlikely that douching or water masturbation can push sperm into the vagina. However, if the sperm is alive, it could let it get contact with the cervix and thus let it enter into the uterus

but the water's chemical properties (hypotonic, if anybody are curious) also likely would cause harm to the sperm, and I doubt it would make it up to the egg.
