    I made some salt water last week Saturday. Its been in a 25l drum which is closed. Does water get old, can I get the temp up, air stone it for a few hours and reuse it?

    Should be fine. If in doubt just check the parameters before adding it to the tank.

    No issues is using it. Can store if for a long time in a sealed container.

    Sorry for the hijack but I want to know if this is the same for RO water? I would expect it to "go off" (to put it colloquially) due to the chlorine being filtered out.

    Same for RO, as long as its in a sealed container it will be fine to store.
