In brief: Depends on solution

The content of the "electrolyte fluid" is the key to answering the question.
Your daily requirements for fluid losses are exceeded by this volume, but quite acceptable if you have normal kidney function. The fluid should contain at least the daily requirements for sodium and potassium, and ideally would include additional additives (such as magnesium) in appropriate amounts.
