My son had Dark yellow urine, drank a large bottle of water and it went completely clear and then a few hours later back to yellow. Normal??

Yes: Concentrated urine is generally very dark, and dilute urine (such as after a large amount of fluids) is quite clear. The urine won't stay clear, once the extra fluid has been eliminated.
