How Much Water is Really Needed?

Reminder from Eagle Water to make sure you’re drinking enough water this summer!

Some say you need eight to ten 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Others say to divide your weight in half and drink that many ounces.

There is no specific number for how much water you should be drinking; it actually depends on many lifestyle factors:

Activity level: Someone who is inactive may not need as much water as someone who is regularly active. When you exercise, you need to increase your intake to replace the water that has been lost through sweating.

Surrounding environment: Hot, humid temperatures or higher altitudes indicate a need for a higher water intake.

Diet: If your diet consists of fruits and vegetables, you may not need to drink as much water.

Illness: If you’re sick be sure to drink lots of water to help you feel better, faster!

Alcohol intake: While drinking alcohol be sure to alternate with water. Alcohol can be very dehydrating, causing those lovely hangovers the next day.

Remember to drink you clean and purified water everyday to stay hydrated, especially in the summer. To learn more about water please call our Eagle Water head office at 1-800-363-6365 or for Ontario residents please call 1-866-427-7757.
