Moisture in salt bag?

Is it a problem when the bag of the salt that is opened gets some moisture in it and the salt get clumped together. Is this ok?

A little trick we used in the Phillippines to keep our salt and sugar or any thing like that from clumping up, was the take a little nylon bag and fill it with plain uncooked white rice. The rice absorbs the moisture before the salt or sugar starts to clump.

This also works in salt shakers ( but in those you don't need to use the nylon bag. The rice is usally too big to fit through the openings)

It means you took to long to go through the salt because you didn't do enough water changes. :D

You can test the water after mixing for the big 3 and it should be ok. Does it crumble really easy or is it a rock. If it's all the way in a rock form, then I'd probably get some new salt.
