Fix for Leaky Roof

In the apartment we are renting in Lapu-Lapu city the roof in the bedroom leaks in two places when it rains hard. So I devised a home made bucket with a wire handle and a wire hook to take care of the leaking water. So far each rain has resulted in only around 8 ounces of water.  I use a plastic 6000 ml water bottle since we buy a lot of these for the baby’s milk. I cut off the top just after it begins to taper down to the neck so I have plenty of room for the water to make it into the bucket. I used some wire I purchased locally for the handle and hook. One of the bottles is adjustable by sliding it back and forth to align with the leak.  See photo The owner has tried several times to stop this leak but it always seems to come back so I keep these home made buckets hanging all the time. The screw goes all the way through into the wood support so it can support the weight.
