Silicone cure time

I used a tiny bit of this silicone to fill in two holes in my spec v and so far it has been sitting for longer than 48 hours. I was wondering if it would be safe to add water now?

Yes you will be fine. 48 hrs is enough unless you have it like a 1/2 inch thick. In general silicone should fully cure within 24 hrs
