I was making a batch of Instant Ocean two weeks ago when I ran out of salt and only got the SG to 1.022. I didnt use it at the time for my water change and its been sitting in a rubbermaid trash can for two weeks in my garage with a lid on and no circulation.

I got salt now and am going to do a change today. can I add to that mix or should I toss it and start over?

I used the water and added about another 20 gallons. We shall see. Thank you for your help
