Saltwater that has sat for a while.....

I have some saltwater that I mixed a few weeks ago that hasn't been used yet. Will all the levels still be in check? I have a power head connected to a hose that pumps the water from the bottom of the bucket out of the water and splashes it back in to try and keep the water well aerated. Will the pH still be ok or do I need to recheck all levels?

I would at least suggest checking the alk, ph and salinity. I keep 10 gal mixed up all the time and sits for weeks easily. Most times it's more for emergencies but I have never had to do anything other than add a bit more RO water to lower the salinity after some evap.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks as usual Steve :P Better to be safe than sorry, should have just tested instead of even posting this question.
