I do try and drink 2 litres of mineral water a day...I was always of the opinion you'd flush out all the electrolytes if you drank that much water...I find water very heavy....might be because I drink coffee and that makes me fly lol and um more than likely dehydrates me

I will not adjust myself to the world..I am adjusted to myself...Anias Nin

Too much water (hyper-hydration, water intoxication) can cause significant problems, including death. you need to drink a lot more than 2 liters of water/day for that to happen though.
