So I've been drinking over a gallon of water a day. The thing is I'm also pissing like a racehorse now (to be expected).

Question: is this marked increase in urination hard on the kidneys?

It shouldn't be to my understanding. If your blood is too salty your kidneys have to work hard to remove the salt. But if your blood isn't salty enough (if you drink a lot of water) your kidneys probably don't have to work hard as the water can simply diffuse through the capillary membrane to attain proper salt concentrations.

Not at all.
