will my mixed water go bad?

So I have high phosphate count in my tap water. Now I know I'm should be using RO water. But the last time I got it from the store it sent my phosphate count sky high. So 80 not sure what that was about. Now if I can find a place that has no phosphate in the water. If I wanted to make a few jugs of mixed water and close them up and let them set. Do I have a time line for when I should use them? Or will it be ok as long as it's closed up?

Re: will my mixed water go bad?

I've mixed water and let it set for a month without issue.
RO/DI really shouldn't have any P04.Most LFS probly don't keep up on their filter maintenance IMO.
Go to walmart and buy distilled it should be good to go.
As long as the container is clean(lacking BB) water shouldn't change just due to storage,I mean their is no life or contamination so how could it change?
