Water storage...

Is it ok to store premixed SW in a sealed 44gal brute with no water movement (powerheads, pumps) or does the water need to be moving?

Water movement shouldn't be needed for storage. I'd add some circulation, though, just before use, if I was doing a large water change. There might be some nutrients in the saltwater that could drive a bit of bacterial growth.

Just keep it dark and airtight. Make sure to check the salinity before use and circulate/aerate for a few hours. ;)

I have a power head and air pump in my brute container (with lid on). I mix continually for 2-3 days checking salinity till I get it where I want. Then I put the powerhead/air on a timer running it for an hour three times a day.
