My wife and I go through bottled water pretty quickly. I am thinking about washing the used water bottles and refilling with tap water, just as a water storage means. I understand the dating and rotation aspect involved, and have even read that reusing water bottles can lead to bacterial growth and allegedly the leaching of certain harmful chemicals. Is anyone else doing this? I know that cases of bottled water are cheap, but I (as always) am looking to do this without spending a ton of money.

To stretch the budget dollar, the wife and I refill a bottle once with filtered water from the refrigerator dispenser then pitch them after that use. Don't know if I would want to reuse for long term storage,especially using tap water.

I use 2 liter and 1 liter soda bottles because they are stringer (NEVER milk jugs because they can hold bacteria!) But after you wash/rinse them very well and fill them up with water add a couple small drops of Bleach (Non scented) Ad they will last a very long time that way! Just make sure and only use a couple drops of bleach not to much cause its gross!

There was a long thread on here with some links but I know a quick google search brings up some good posts
