Hydration: Typically 6-8 cups of water/day is adequate hydration, more if the person is exposed to hot weather, exercising and losing fluids through sweat and exhaled moisture. The average healthy teenager can down 32 oz of a beverage in a few minutes. Two of those is a full day's supply. Following the first one, 8 oz/hour would be a good rate.
