You can never have to much water in you system, when you drink a lot of water, your body releases more ADH hormones and your urine will be more diluted with water.

If you're talking bout intake at one instance, you would know when you had a too much water to drink when your belly is extremely full and make water noises when you walk and you feel nauseous.

The above answer technically is untrue. You CAN have too much water in your system, especially if there's a high enough intake over a long enough time. You can actually drown yourself.

It is true, though, that too much in one instance can leave you nauseous and feeling very heavy around the core area. If such occurs, lying on your left side for a while can alleviate the nauseous feelings.

You can have two much water in your system, it leads to the potentially fatal water intoxication. The recommended amount of water to drink is 1.2 litres a day (about 2.5 pints), and more importantly to drink to satisfy thirst rather than to reach the 1.2l 'target'.

In short: You have had enough water when you are no longer thirsty.
