Does he have diabetes? That could be the problem. He might be low in sodium and his system is trying to keep his fluid/electrolyte balance. A doctor can test that. Salt pills would help that.

I don't get on this forum very much, so sorry for the late reply. My husband had this OCD with fluids. When he could ambulate on his own we had to turn off all the accessible water supplies off under the sink counters and put a chain and padlock on the fridge. It was horrible. We found no reason for it other than an OCD. He vocalizes babbles constantly also, non-stop unless he is sleeping. Blocking access to the excessive fluids is the only thing that worked. We tried different meds to no avail. He can no longer walk to get to fluids so that's the only thing that helped with that.
