Does drinking more water flush sodium from the body?

Does drinking an increased average daily water intake carry sodium out of the body and potentially increase ones need for sodium?. For example if someone drank a gallon or so a day and followed a low less than 1500mg of sodium diet would the excess water carry sodium out of the body and thus put the person at risk for sodium deficiency or does increased water not flush sodium from the body?

I know acute over consumption of water can dilute blood sodium and cause hyponatremia but I'm talking long term and not dilute blood levels just low body levels in general.

Sweating causes loss of sodium and dehydration. If only the water is replaced you have essentially "flushed" the sodium from your body.

Generally sweating causes loss of sodium and dehydration.Just drinking more water, however, is not a solution for a long-term high-sodium diet, says Reinagel.
Whatever it may be, but don't forget when you are going to drink water then you can drink filter water. If you want for a water filter, then Pure Water Filter Products ( is a reputable online resource providing Aquasana water filters for drinking .
