Dear Ron
In general, it is recommended that adults should consume 2,5 litres of Liquid per day (this includes water of all types, fruit juice, milk, cold drinks, tea, coffee and any other non-alcoholic beverages you may consume). If it is particularly hot and you have sweated excessively then having an extra 300 ml of water should be in order. However, drinking vast volumes of fluids such as 3-5 litres a day can lead to electrolyte depletion which can be harmful to health.
