Yes: Right away depends on whether they are doing testing immediately and then sending to a lab for confirmation, or just sending to a lab. Many of the screening tests have tests for concentration as part of the test, and if the urine is too dilute it will show up. If they are just sending to the lab, the lab will tell them within 24 hours that the specific gravity or creatinine are low. ...Read more

Most labs run very sensitive screens to identify major classes of drugs then when they find a positive they run a highly specific gas chromatograph / mass spectrometer.
