Sounds like a jacuzzi, not a bath tub. Is this what you are doing?

usually cleanest bathing is in a shower followed by playing in a hot
tub; see sanitation at:

and lots more at bottom links at:

You do NOT want a hot tub if you actually want to bathe in it .

Taking a shower first and then soaking is fine, but too much debris
(soap, skin oils, etc) will really put a load on filters and sanitizing
chemicals.

Check your local codes. Your tub water may be considered gray water,
and disposal as surface water might be permitted.
