Hey neighbor.

I would be very concerned about what was previously stored in the totes.

Many chemicals transported in these totes will leach into the plastic and then when you fill it with your clean water, will leach back out into the water.

I dont know if a full soak with acid would be enough because this leaching process can be very slow.

I would only use yours of you can confirm they contained a safe material. To these totes are often triple rinsed and reused with different chemicals each time.

I have some food grade glycerin totes that I use after triple rinsing. I feel comfortable with these particular ones because they are new when filled.

Be careful you know what you get your hands on
