As long as the container is sealed, you can keep RO a long, long time. Ditto for the saltwater. However, be aware that if you want to use the saltwater in your tank, I would recommend that it be aerated for at least a few hours before use. Storing it in the container will not allow any oxygen to get to it, so it would need to be invigorated before use. That is the only caution I can think of. I premix and have my saltwater circulating and heated in a bin for days until I am ready to use. HTH 8)
