I cut salt our 2 days before, that got me to 236. The home made bathroom sauna got me to 229. I drank about 2 gallons of 50/50 water and gatorade before I went to bed and it only got me back up to 240 the next morning. I drank 2 more before the meet and didnt have to pee until 10minutes before I had to start warming up. I shouldnt have dehydrated. The whole meet would have ended a lot differently, I think.
