Gosh that's alot of water for a little body. i sure dont drink that much and im still very much alive..... and functioning most of the time.
You will probably find on the warmer weather she will naturally drink a bit more.
I wouldnt force the issue unless she's showing the physial signs of dehydration.

My kids are pretty good at drinking water. They love to get their own drinks. In the summer I keep a flask ( blue picnic style one with a push button tap) in the fridge and they love to help themselves.
You could try different cups or bendy straws too. We had a small plastic wine goblet from a picnic set that DD2 loved using.

I would stop calculating her water consumption and relax. Her wee accidents may be because she is drinking water she doesn't need and she has to wee it out. Don't restrict her water and don't push it, just let her drink if she's thirsty.

My 4yo dd doesn't drink that much water. I always have her water bottle
filled and available and will remind her to drink if she has something sweet or salty but generally she will only drink 1 full 300ml bottle. She has plenty of fruit though and goes to toilet regularly so I am not worried.

The figure my personal trainer (and backed up by my doctor )told me is 22 ml per kilo per day. If your child is 20kg then its 440 ml.
