I'm about to re-caulk between our cast-iron bathtub and the wall tile. I've seen a few references in various places to filling the tub with water first prior to caulking, so that ultimately when taking a bath it doesn't stress the caulk by over-yanking on it. Caulking with a tub full of water doesn't sound particularly easy, and I don't know if people here think it's ever necessary, but since this is cast iron and of course very heavy, is it even less necessary? Thanks.
