The original application was for what laughingly passes for roofs in
African hovels. I doubt the failure of the milk jug plastic would be
an issue for them. I don't have anyplace where I would purposely cut
a hole in a sound roof in order to shove a milk jug filled with water
into it. If you do, go for it. Usually when I want light in my sheds
I just open the doors.
Uh Oh. I'm going to have to back pedal.... I thought this referred to
the gallon water jugs/milk jugs. I see now I miss read it and it's
about those single serve water bottles. I still wouldn't cut holes in
my good roofs to put those in it but I don't think those have a UV
problem. The kind of plastic I was picturing was the milky kind, not
the clear stuff.
