Pop bottle water storage?

I was tossing out a couple empty 64oz plastic pop bottles this morning and was wondering if they can be reused as water storage or if there is any reason that would be a bad idea.

I know a lot of folks do use 2-liter plastic bottles for water storage. If you opt to do so, be sure they are thoroughly cleaned before putting pure drinking water in them.

I understand that those plastic bottles will break down and leach chemicals over time--particularly if left in the sunlight. So my recommendation would be to use the bottles for storing water that is NOT going to be for drinking ... and to of course replenish the water stored in them every six months or so.
