How long can you store salt water? I have some water I got premixed about 3 weeks ago, it has been stored in a 5 gal culligan jug and appears normal as it sits, not cloudy no settled salt on the bottom of the jug, do you think this water is still good?

I have always been told you should have a power head or pump keeping it moving, But Im not 100% sure. Im sure some others will know better than me.

It depends on what else in the mix such as organics, no organic such as IO can be mixed and stored for a couple months but salts like RC have organics in it and need to stay mixed to keep from the possibility of going anaerobic.

You can store it for a long time. It's just salt water, not much can happen with it. Once it is properly mixed, there isn't any reason to keep it circulated or heated.
