RO/DI Tanks?

Is it wise to use RO/DI tanks? I ask because there would not be much water circulations in the tank if it was only used twice a month for aquarium water changes. Would this not lead to raised levels of Nitrite or ammonia?

Personally I use a tank so I always have ro/di water available. nh3/no2 isn’t an issue since nh3 wouldn’t be introduced to the storage tank. Even after a month of sitting the TDS meter still is at 0.

Using a dedicated storage/mixing container and making sure to properly aerate/heat your water when mixing salt for 24 hours uncovered is key.
