Hi there,

Yes there is good chance your urine may become diluted.

However you may turn out lucky since you already urinated 5 times.

Now detection of alcohol depends.

If they are looking for alcohol metabolite ETG then it will show up.

If they are just testing for alcohol, then this will likely not be detected.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
