Mishnah Mikvaos 6:2: Regarding an [impure] bucket which is full of vessels, if one immerses them, they are [all] pure. But if one did not [intend to] immerse [the bucket, i.e. if the bucket was already pure], the waters [in the bucket and those in the mikveh] do not mix [to render the vessels in the bucket pure], unless they were mixed [through an opening] the size of the tube of a flask.

דְּלִי שֶׁהוּא מָלֵא כֵלִים וְהִטְבִּילָן, הֲרֵי אֵלּוּ טְהוֹרִים. וְאִם לֹא טָבַל, אֵין הַמַּיִם מְעֹרָבִין, עַד שֶׁיִּהְיוּ מְעֹרָבִין כִּשְׁפוֹפֶרֶת הַנּוֹד:

Mishnah Mikvaos 6:3: Regarding three mikvaot, one containing twenty se'ah [a specific unit of volume], one containing twenty se'ah, and one containining twenty se'ah of drawn water [while the other two contain valid water], and the drawn [water mikvah] was to the side, if three people descended and immersed in them [at once, one in each], and they [caused the waters to overflow such that the three mikvaot] were mixed, the mikvaot are pure and the immersers are pure. If the drawn [water mikvah] was in the middle, and three people descended and immersed, and they were mixed, the mikvaot are as they were [before the people immersed], and the immersers remain as they were [i.e. impure].

שְׁלשָׁה מִקְוָאוֹת, בָּזֶה עֶשְׂרִים סְאָה, וּבָזֶה עֶשְׂרִים סְאָה, וּבָזֶה עֶשְׂרִים סְאָה מַיִם שְׁאוּבִין, וְהַשָּׁאוּב מִן הַצַּד, וְיָרְדוּ שְׁלשָׁה וְטָבְלוּ בָהֶן וְנִתְעָרְבוּ, הַמִּקְוָאוֹת טְהוֹרִין וְהַטּוֹבְלִים טְהוֹרִים. הָיָה הַשָּׁאוּב בָּאֶמְצַע, וְיָרְדוּ שְׁלשָׁה וְטָבְלוּ בָהֶם וְנִתְעָרְבוּ, הַמִּקְוָאוֹת כְּמוֹת שֶׁהָיוּ, וְהַטּוֹבְלִים כְּמוֹת שֶׁהָיוּ:
