what do you mean? do large partial water changes with your salt mixed with RO water.

If there is nothing living in the tank you can do it all. If there is just live rock, keep the rock covered and change the rest. If there are fish and inverts do about thirty percent every two days. Do that about four times and you should be okay. Just always use RO from now on. The phosphates and stuff that's in the tap will eventually be gone.

The more you change from the start the better. Then just keep up on regular water changes with rodi and you should be fine.
