    Re: Idioms

    I've not heard of that idiom, sorry. There's the adjective watertight meaning without flaws or loopholes; "an ironclad contract"; "a watertight alibi"; "a bulletproof argument". Synonyms: bulletproof, ironclad, unshakable, unassailable, incontestable, incontestible - incapable of being contested or disputed.

    Source: watertight - definition of watertight by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Hope that helps.
