pressure treated wood on internal walls

We are redoing are basement bathroom. One wall has a lot of drain pipes and supply pipes and as the washing machine is up stairs has in the past had small amounts of water overflowing and running down inside the wall. The bottom plate of this wall is rotted and needs to be replaced. Of course intend to stop the water issue, but is there any reason why you can't use presssure treated wood on an internal wall to give some added water and rot protection. Are the chemicals in the pressure treated wood going to affect the drywall, tiles, general health etc.
Appreciate any feedback

contact the manufacturer of the pressure treated wood you are condisering using, some pressure treated wood is now supposedly safe for indoors use, except if used for cutting boards or some other application (forget what it was now)

Pressure treated wood is required by code for all bottom plates in contact with concrete. That includes interior walls. The only thing you cannot do is leave it exposed to the room.
