Clogged Drain

An imaginary bathtub is partially clogged in an imaginary Motel. This could be disastrous. Imagine if the bathtub overflowed and spilled all over the Motel floor? This might be a nightmarish possibility.

The bathtub faucet fills at a rate of 10 liters per minute. The clogged drain is draining at 6 liters per minute. When the bathtub is 80% full the water reaches the overflow drain which drains at 3 liters per minute.

If the bathtub has a capacity of 160 liters, how much time in minutes do the Motel owners have to reach the bathtub?
