Storage for ro water

Anyone have any ideas as to where I would be able to store anywhere from 20-50g of ro water. I don't mean like yea I can put it in a garbage can but like where I could store it that temperature wouldn't affect it too much. I don't have a garage so that's why I'm asking

Downstairs closet. That is the most constant temp in the whole house.

First off, why is it a big deal if temp affects it. Just wondering where your going with this.

Idk I just thought that you dont want to shock the fish putting water in that has a few degree temp difference

When I said I didn't want temp affecting it, I was referring to putting it outside, and I live in Miami fl so I t gets pretty hot

If your topping off every day then temp will not change much if any. No one heats there ATO reservoirs in the winter and no ill effects. It would only become a concern as the water volume gets larger.

Ah ok i got the picture now lol. I would store somewhere in the house if at all possible. A closet would be good. If you need to store outside, keep a lid tight and out of direct sunlight in a very shaded area. Bout the only thing you can do.

If you have your own ro/di unit then i would just suggest making it when needed as fresh it will be cooler.

I have never had this problem sorry.
