1 doctor agrees

In brief: > 2 L of urine/day

Need to have an overall fluid intake to achieve a urine output of at least 2, 000 mls/24 hours.
It is dependent on your activity, environment, clothing, ........ The average soldier in desert storm needed 3-12 gallons of water per day. Travel, especially on an airplane, requires additional fluids: why do you think the flight attendents are always offering you water.

In brief: Given prior history

In a patient with a previous history of kidney stones, the recommendation is to drink enough to void at least 2 liters/day.
