I was getting kidney stones every other week for a spell until they did surgery and zapped the big stone that the shards I was passing came from. Then I was told to avoid Mt Dew because it is a horrible dieuretic actually dehydrates you if you don't match it with water. I used to go through 4-5 two liter bottles a day but very little water.I used to drink sweet tea by the gallons and I’ve had three kidney stones so I went from almost none…unless you count what’s in mtn dew and tea….to around 15 20oz bottles a day. I don’t drink anything else but coffee and water. That’s been the norm for the last five years and no more damn kidney stones! They will make you change!
I don't know about those oz you're all talking about, but between coffee, water and that sweet delicious sparkling water, I drink a couple liters a day at least. Some nights I treat myself to a couple fruity IPAs!!!

I obviously drink more when I'm outside but I don't really keep track of how much I drink, I follow the old "huh, that's a bit dark" trick when I wee and drink more when I need to.
