Are Refillable Plastic Water Bottles Safe?

We purchase water at the grocery store using the large refillable plastic bottles. Is it safe to keep using the same plastic bottle? Thanks.

If the recycling code on the bottom of the bottle says 2, 4 or 5 then it is safe for reuse but to be on the safer side I would replace every few months and be sure to wash between refills.
