I do the same - I'd say 24 hours in a Rubbermaid container with a powerhead for surface ripple/circulation and you should be getting an accurate pH reading for what to expect.

Agree that a "closed" container would hamper proper O2 exchange, but if your Rubbermaid tub is like mine, even with the lid on, I wouldn't consider it "closed" enough to effect O2 exchange! No if you're talking one of those nifty RC salt buckets with the o-ring seal... that's a different story!
