Continuous fertilizing?

So I'm making a DIY drip water change system since I'm a little lazy. All my aquariums are on the same dosage amounts, so I was wondering if there is any harm in pre mixing the fertilizers in the 'new water' bucket to have continuous dosing throughout the week?

You could get a dosing pump. That is what I plan on doing once I order my ferts.

I've definitely considered this as well, which is what I will do if it turns out that what I'm suggesting isn't feasible.
