I am confused about the amount of water I should drink.I sit in an AC office and don't sweat.Read somewhere more than 3 ltrs a day can cause edema.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends on diet

3 liters is a lot of water if you are not sweating and could cause water intoxication unless you have some salt intake.
*8 glasses of water is plenty to drink.
