So hubbys  setting up RODI system with  35 gallon water storage tank and im trying to decide where to go from there....do I get a 20 gallon container to mix saltwater??? Do I just work out of my 5 gallon buckets??? Show and explain how you have yours set up so I can give my hubby some ideas. This is for a 75G aquarium

I’d have to do some digging for a pic of my old set up. Now I just order my water from Amazon. 

 

Personally i I think it’s best to have some water made up. Back in the day I used to like to have half my water volume made up and ready to go, in case of emergencies.

Here is a thread in mine.  I still don't have the automation done to my RODI but this has worked well for me.

It should be good for a long time. If you are doing regular water changes, I would think you would go through 20 gallons way before you ever had to worry about the water going bad ( if it really even goes bad).

It will be good indefinitely. I always kept a heater and powerhead in the mixing container.

Don’t get any better than that. Although that seems high going in.

Mine is that high going in too, we have liquid rock up here in my corner of the state!  Keep an eye on the DI resin, you will probably go through it rather quickly.  I added 2 more stages of DI to try to suck a little more life out of the resins which worked pretty well.
