TL;DR
Basement flooded with fresh water (hurricane)
external return pump half submerged but still running while submerged
pump now kicks off GFI outlet
removed case plug and drained water

can I save this pump?
should I spray WD-40 or similar product into case to try and displace the water?

Thank you

I let it sit for a couple of hours draining, I didnt get more than a couple of Tbs of water out.
hooked it up
plugged it in

IT WORKS!!!!! for now...lol
