The more water you drink, the more you will urinate it and essential electrolytes (sodium, potassium) out. So your water intake and salt intake impact one another. If you're drinking lots of water, you'll need more salt. Here in the dry desert, it's very easy to drink well over a gallon a day even if I'm indoors just b/c it's so dry. I have at least a teaspoon of salt each day.
