i would definately let it cure for at least 72 hours then... since there will be some pressure trying to push it off the hose, it would be best imo to let it go its full course if not longer. somehow i missed that part and thought it was a seam in the sump, which wouldnt be as big of a deal since the water would be working to push it against the seam instead of out... make sense?
