Well seal it, remove a joystick or pierce a hole and allow the water in. That should work fairly well.

Also I've read on various sites that some plastics do leech stuff into the water over time. I've heard a lot of people say that if you soak the plastic in hot water, and it goes brittle, slimy, or has a 'plastic' smell.. then you can' use it.

However i haven't tried this personally

number 5 plastic is the safest number 7 is the worst 1 2 & 4 are ok i dont know about 7 or 8
