The Time limits on Bathwater

I can't even think where I would look this up, all I get are Japanese bathing etiquette.

How long could bathwater be left in a soaking tub before it would HAVE to be changed? The underground society I have in my novel can't refill bathtubs very often, so they only do it when they have to (on the surface, the "poor" communal baths go maybe a week before changing and they scrub in the tub; the "rich" can have American tubs that are filled when bathing is desired). I would think it's about a month or so, possibly more. I can have them soak in the tubs and scrub outside of them, like the Japanese do, and conserve the cleaness more.
