Do NOT listen to Gout Conquerer! Drinking 10 ounces of water every 30 minutes is insane and could harm or even kill you.

A large chronically dehydrated person living in Florida in July, sweating profusely, would have a hard time justifying more than 16 cups of water per day. The average person is awake 16 to 20 hours per day, If you were to drink 10 ounces every 30 minutes, you could end up drinking 3 gallons of water per day, which, unless you're a professional athlete or someone who often finds themselves losing that much fluid per hour, would probably cause you harm.

While it's important to stay hydrated and some excess water can help flush some things out, don't overdo it and be sure to include at least a bit of salt and potassium while you're consuming that much liquid, quad cramps are the worst! 8 - 12 ounces per hour until you pass the skin pull test, which is a decent gauge of your current hydration. Once you've hit normal hydration levels and you're pretty sure your electrolytes are under control, drop to 4-8 ounces per hour depending on your weight.
