This black plastic pot liner thing is my version of a birdbath and water feature. It fills with rain, and sometimes I dump it out and wash it with the hose by jamming my thumb in the hose end to create more pressure from the hose. When it dries out for weeks or a month the sun kills off germs as well as it can, which in Texas I assume is decent. Practically speaking aside from ensuring the neighborhood cats get water it’s has no real obvious purpose but it has one I really like which I also put a plate on the outdoor table for. I get to see what the wind and weather is like at a glance. No need to look around the backyard or garden that much, just peer at the surface of the water and see how much it’s moving, how bright the light reflecting off it is, or whatever. Plus it reflects the sky at all times so it’s nice.
