Leachables can leach without hot water, though to a lesser degree. It's difficult to say how much damage that amount of synthetic chemical would or would not have over time, but if you can find a sturdier bottle, why not?

If you're putting boiling-hot water into the bucket, yes, there's a great chance of BPAs leaking into the soil. According to "Scientific American," there are many other estrogen-mimicking chemicals we consume every day that cause just as bad of damage. Just make sure you're pots don't get hot water.
