water change screwup

So I started mixing 10 gallons of fresh salt water,and sometime last night the temp probe came out of the container. When I got up this morning the water temp was 105 degrees. Using Instant Ocean Reef Crystals. Once The water cools down is it still safe to use or should I toss it?

It's probably fine as long as there's no large buildup of precipitate. If there is an issue, it'd be low alkalinity and calcium.

I agree with bertoni. This is really bad practice and I wouldn't do it regularly because some calcium will likely precipitate. But other than that, it should be fine.
