Excellent advice - it never hurts to repeat this, as I'm sure (by observation) that there are plenty of people out there who don't know about hydration. Even in our group, who've been diving together without incident for years, we've had at least one small niggle directly attributable to dehyrdration as we've moved forward into deeper diving.
