Default Plastic Buckets OK?

Q: I have used food grade plastic buckets in my home brewing adventures in the past (for fermenting and bottling). However, does anybody know if it is ok to use a normal 5 gallon plastic bucket in brewing? I will be using it for sparging. In other words, I will be filling the plastic bucket with boiling water to drain over the grains. So i guess all I am trying to say is will plastic affect the taste or anything? Thanks

If it's not food grade....I wouldn't use it.
