I do mix my saltwater for 24hours before using it Just wondering how much of a threat aeresols are etc. I mix the water in the bathroom, which is nextdoor to the toilet. So, the only threat is the air freshener in the toilet. As long as I try and keep doors closed as much as possible, I guess it won't be a major issue.

I would not worry about air contaminates unless there being sprayed right around an open pail of water. Your skimmer has more of a chance of picking up air contaminates and introducing them into the tank then your mixing bucket.... JMO
My etss reef devil has an attachment you can get so the air that is sucked into the skimmer passes through carbon first......
Mix 24 hrs seems to be the unwritten rule and bring the temp up is a must....
