I think the general rule of thumb is approximate 2 litres of fluid per day. I know it was said that this should be water and any other fluid would be extra but I think SW count all fluid as one.
Personally I drink a litre and a half of sparkling water a day and coffee is extra.
There are just over 2 pints in a litre so it would mean you having approx 4 pint glasses a day.

It is easier if you have a bottle as you know how much you are drinking then. That's why I said I have a litre and a half of sparkling water because I buy a dozen bottles at a time a drink one a day....sometimes more.
Water is the best fluid to drink as you body/kidneys don't have to process it.

Your body still has to process the water as it goes into the bloodstream, which is then filtered by the kidneys. But yes, water is the best liquid as the kidneys wouldn't need to do anything bar recover it :) xx

This is the official line from the SW website:

Q: Will drinking plenty of water improve my weight loss?

A: Contrary to popular belief, drinking water doesn’t magically speed up weight loss or increase your metabolic rate. Feelings of thirst, however, are often mistaken for feelings of hunger so drinking a glass of water rather than a packet of crisps can allay that feeling (of course, with Food Optimising, you can reach for some Free Food or count Syns without worrying about adding inches!). Water also keeps you hydrated and lubricated, so it’s important to include around 6-8 glasses or 1½-2 litres of fluids a day (that includes low calorie squash, juices, tea and coffee.)
