Following a severe draught in my country (Portugal), I decided to create
this item so that, in cases of extreme absence of water, a person can
use their own urine as a means to directly recycle their body fluids.

This piece is composed of a catheter to be introduced in the urethra. In
the middle of the tube, there’s a filtering box from where another tube
exits and ends up in a mouthpiece, which enables the ingestion of the
user’s own recycled urine.

Considering the progressive changes in the weather conditions, never
say: “I shall never drink from this water”.
