Wanted to hear from the experts if this water is dirty enough to be changed half way through vacuuming? I vacuum every day and this is from this morning upstairs. 4 bathrooms 2 bathrooms and hall. Most of the stuff in the water is from the new carpet in the hall

I would probably finish the job with that water. Sounds like you're not going to be adding much more to it. When in doubt, use a 4 quart water basin.

my rainbow water mop water with some cat hair.... which I why I've always flushed it with no issues. I'd keep vacuuming with that water. I usually change mine two times for my whole house just to be safe.

Id continue vacuuming. I bought a cheap strainer bowl. I'll flush regular stuff down the toilet but other items just dump into garbage.

to change yet, keep on going.  It needs to be changed when its dark and/or thick
