    I drink a lot of water. Since 9am I have drank almost 70 ounces. But I just wanted to know what kind of water you guys drink and what you feel is the best. I know water is water basically but that might not always be the case.
    I am currently drinking Glaceau Smart Water that is enhanced with electrolytes..They come in big 33.8 fl oz bottles.. I seem to like it..

    Also, how much water should I be drinking daily? Is there ever a point where you can drink TOO much water? Let me know! Thanks :wiggle:

    gal to 1.5 gals a day.. A gallon is 128 ounces..

    I also drink smart water, mostly because the size of the bottles and a friend of mine distributes it, so I get it for free by the case loads. Try to drink 5 or 6 of those a day.

    I drink water all day long. I buy the 1.5 liter of FIGI on Mondays and I refill it throughout the work week with the water cooler water. At home I drink it out of my fridge.

    I'll drink water from the tap...doesn't bother me as long as it's cold.

    I drink close to 1.5 gallons a day, and yea there is a point that you can drink too much water but that typically only happens to marathoners and complete fucking idiots(ie SMU frat boys)

    I drink about 3 litres of bottle water w/ crystal light. Add to that a few 700ml bottles of Propel.
    Adds up to just over a gallon on most days.

    I drink Ozarka. My company has a contract with them so they buy it gallons at a time. They also stock the refrigerator with bottles. I drink over a gallon a day but i don't really watch it that closely.

    "on the go crystal light" its little packs you put in 16.9 ounce water bottle or 2 cups water..

    propel is flavored water ..smart water is just electrolyte enhanced water..not flavored.. not sure if propel has electrolytes? :dunno:

    Just Optimum nutrition. Considering ordering Purple Wrath or BN's Bulk EAA sometime soon.
    I also add the electrolythe replacement powder with the BCAA and crystal light. Sip it during my workout.

    Oh, I tried those... they had a deal online for like 24 boxes few months ago. After it ran out, it took me a while to enjoy plain water again.
