As my long-winded and complicated response at

may be hard to read. Some may find the following to be more useful:

which is from the free review article available at: http://www.jacn.org/content/26/suppl_5/597S.long

Further and detailed additional free articles on topic are available here:

Seems high, but if you end of perspiring enough to lose 5-6 liters, could be that you will need that much. Intake estimate probably also includes water associated with
food ingestion.
