I silicon’d my glass into my window frame today. I’m just wondering how long to leave it before filling with water?
The thickness of the silicon is probably only 3-4mm at the thickest points.

Managed to drop the glass into the pond on the first attempt at fitting.
Lifting 43kg of glass out of 3rd deep water wasn’t particualry enjoyable. Not to mention the 4mm of silicon that was covering 3 edges.
