The water doesn’t support the bacteria as much as the LR and LS do. Therefore you can do another water change in 24 hours (the time it takes to properly aerate and mix new saltwater). However, I would try and keep my water changes at 25% or less of the total volume to help reduce stress. Also try to match the salinity and temperature to avoid sudden changes to these parameters.
