Child sitting in a tub of water after passing urine or stool

Q: My little brother usually plays in a small tub of water. He was wearing swimming shorts and went to urinate, he didn’t do istinja (he usually doesn’t do it after urination and defecation). Afterwards he came back and sat in the same tub of water. Does the water become impure? I don’t think the smell color and taste of water changed after that.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
