Question about Plumbing
During the bad weather and we had no electricity,i suspected my 1hp goulds pump was submerge during the flood . And when there was electricity already, i waited for it to dry before turning on the switch. However, when i turned on the switch, a sound burst as if it shorted and smoke came off. Do you think the motor was damaged or is it protected by an overload switch that even if it smoked the motor will not be affected?
It is probably shot, you can do some simple ohm readings with multi-meter to see if it is shorted to ground. hope this helps

The #4E must be run submerged. The #3E may be used submerged or in-line. IMPORTANT: When
used in-line, the #3E must be installed so that the pump head (volute) is flooded before starting. That is,
the inlet of the pump must be below the level of the surface of the liquid being pumped.
