    thats amazing!...id of never even considered that at all..though it might replace the bottle as id imagine the sun might effect the bottle after a while.

    They may become brittle and crack due to long time UVL exposure, but replacing them will not be a problem. There definitely is no shortage of plastic water bottles around the world.

    They also use the same plastic water bottles, with a little chlorine, as a method to purify and make potable drinking water in areas of contaminated drinking water. The sun along with the chlorine kills the harmful bacteria. Clean, cheap and efficient. :cool:

    That could be a lot of fun with colored bottles. I can hear the guests now "wow, that is bright; is that a 100 watt bulb?"..."nope, 2 liter". I can see me collapsing some of those roofs; they don't seem to be rated for "hefty".

    Oh! They rediscovered (or copied) an old ship's prism light.

    Glass Ship Prism #7044

    Very nice idea and a great solution with the water bottles!
