Some bottles may in fact contain more then one plastic, there may be a very thin layer of another plastic on the inside. Maybe pick up a couple of brown glass bottles with wax seal metal caps for developers and use the HDPE bottles for other chemicals. Last I looked Perrier water came in dark green glass bottles, if the 1L bottle is glass, then pick up a couple of bottles of that, probably the cheapest source of colour glass bottles. Drink the water, it's not suitable for photographic use
