Basement Flooded/return pump has water in the casing


New member
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
