Maybe. take a sample of your water down the the pet store and see what you have in there. Watch for high Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates and Phospahtes. If Ammonia and Nitrites are high you'll have problems with fish. Trates and Phosphates in the low range are tolerable.

I do the same thing. I have a food grade 55g barrel I store my water in. I have a powerhead in it and a heater in the cold weather. I add the salt 24hrs before I plan on doing the change.
