Try putting it in a bag of rice to help it dry out, then replace the battery.

My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?


You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.


Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

My son dropped his phone in the ocean will not come on


It most likely is dead. Whenever this happens you should immediately remove the battery. If that is not possible turn the phone off. From there, letting the phone dry by putting it in a Ziploc bag with rice for several days sometimes will fix the phone.
I once dropped mine in a pool. I popped the battery off, dried it out with the rice method and tried to get it working again. It did not work until I replaced the battery but the phone was fine after that.

Pressure at about 10psi then drops to zero then back then drops to zero again. Sputter flow of water. Filters and filter baskets have been cleaned.


Try replacing or lubricating the seal on the basket lid. Pool pumps rely on a completely sealed system to work properly. If there is any air getting into the system on the suction side the pump will surge.

Phone is wet. dropped the phone in the rain...it was left outside 45 minutes


One time that happened to us tho it was actually dropped in a pool. We took battery out and dried it for a couple days. When we put the battery back in, it ACTUALLY worked. May not work for everyone or every phone but worth a try.

Water


Sometimes when electronics are dropped in water, you can still use the. Circut boards have a silicon coat over the circut boards for instances like this. Depending on how long it was in the water, you may be able to still use it. Let the phone dry out for about 24 hrs (take out battery and back cover) then try to replace the battery and start it back up. If it doesnt turn on the circuts were affected and it broken.

My Razr V3 got wet...


When these phones get wet, there is perminent damage. The fix is to swap out the circuit boards that become damaged. It is cheaper to buy a new phone rather than fix it.
