This was done in Philippines. Water and bleach in bottle of coke was fitted on the roof. It absorbs and reflects sunlight and is equal to 55 watt.

Absolutly real the bleach stops the water going green in the sun and the water reflects the light inside, simple but brilliant :wave:

I'm sure they would all prefer a fancy skylight with glazed dome and reflective tube and fashionable interior diffuser, but they would cost more than their whole house - so they make do with the coke bottle.

Actually a brilliant idea that costs very little and works to bring lots of light inside a room that has no natural light.

I hope he has patented his idea its genius :idea-007: I find it amazing how people living in the worst circumstances always find a way to make life that little bit easier for themselves and appreciate it so much more than what we just take for granted sometimes.

Hi Notthedodles,


Does it work in moonlight too, and what's the wattage?

Snowbirds.

I think you need the one with the dimmer switch fitted for night time so it depends on if its a full moon, half moon or no moon :wave:

I love these simply brilliant discoveries-it reminds me of when it was discovered that leaving river water in the sun in a clear,plastic bottle for a day made it safe to drink. I've never dared to test it but it was publicized by a charity in Africa so I would hope it really worked.

Clever and I see they have fitted a bit of flashing but long term watertightness around the hole would be a weak point.
