Question about RO water stored- dog drank some

I have a uncovered 30g tub of RO water that I was getting ready to add salt to.

Of course my Great Dane Apollo figured it was a new water bowl for him and drank a couple of laps. Is this water toast now or will the salt kill anything that might have been in his saliva? Or should I dump it and get new water. I just hate wasting 30gallons of RO water...

Thanks!

I wouldn't sweat it. Oh the stories I could tell about what has dropped into, gotten into, found floating in my tanks.

Thanks! He is just a baby and at least he isn't interested in the tank yet!

+1
Now if it was my St. Bearnard the backwash alone would change the PH at the very least.
