Designed in rural contexts with high solar radiation, it is proposed to refurbish the drinking water facilities of elevated tanks, so that light can enter sanitary enclosures, such as bathrooms. To do this, it is considered to implement a transparent methacrylate pipe from the roofs that allows redirecting the light during the day, spreading it while the artifact is working, by means of the refraction produced with the water. In this way, it is possible to generate greater habitability and comfort to humid enclosures, offering a paradigm shift and new experiences for the user.
