Numbers on the bottom of bottles

This may seem like quite an odd question, but I'm trying to work it into a story
I'm working on. You know how there are numbers on the bottom of a plastic
bottle? What do they mean? I'm not asking about the numbers with the recycling
symbol on them but the number that's usually opposite that one, which isn't in a
triangle.

I've found that numbers range between 1 and (the highest I've found) 26, but I
do not know what this stands for and if it would actually lend anything to a
story. Does it have anything to do with the water quality after so many re-uses?

But I'd like to give it a shot.

Any help would be lovely,
Thankyou!

Edit: Sorry to the mods for not putting a subject line. That was silly of me.
