Is there any bad effect of drinking too much water?
Drinking more than about 2L of water per hour, over several hours, can kill you. For what it's worth, that's a damned lot of water to drink.
"Water intoxication" (hyponatremia) is only a serious problem for marathon runners, whose bodies may not be excreting water quickly enough to make up for the water they're drinking feverishly.
that's not a very good source. it would be more than just a few sips of water. if gastric acid is diluted then it won't break down matter as effectively and the body will be forced to pump out more stomach acid. the continuous pumping is what can contribute to acid reflux.
