I keep the 32g garbage can full of ro
water and mix the day before I am doing a pwc
. I keep the 4 5g jugs inside in a closet so I dont have to worry about running out. Keep in mind too that you need some unsalted water for top offs. I wouldnt mix salt water too far in advance either, not sure if it its a good thing.
I also have so many tanks that I need access to plain ole ro
water. When I do my pico water changes I only need like a gallon and for my cube I use 3-4 gallons. For these tanks i just take out of the 32g can and mix inside the house in 5g buckets. When I do the 125g I start with a almost full 32g can and salt it outside and just fill up 5g buckets or use the pump.
The 5g jugs that I keep in the closet are more for protection if I need immediate water and I have an empty garbage can LOL
