Low Body Water?

ok this is a weird question and i didnt know what section it should go under. i have one of those scales that says your body fat and body water. according to my scale my body water is under the low category. it is usually between 53-57 percent. im just wondering why its so low because i drink about 2-3 gallons of water per day?

It becuase you are reading a device that has proven time and time again to be worthless in reading anything other than total Body weight.

keep drinking, if your thirsty or you urine is dark you need to drink more.
