Yeah you can.

This is what I do when I do a waterchange. Fill up the bucket with ro/di water then add the salt. Then add whatever additives I need to get that water the same levels as is in my tank. for the alk and calcium additives I still mix them in a cup of ro/di water before adding it to the new saltwater.
