    Plug your life sustaining devices into a power strip and let the power bar dry out

    If you can take it apart, be sure it's unpluged take it apart aND rinse it in RODI water twice then blow it dry with air compressor or cans of air. Wait for it to fully dry then put back together and pray.

    anytime you get saltwater on your equipment, you need to rinse it out asap and dry it. I dropped my apex remote in the tank and was able to get it working normal again using this method.

    cant hurt to try now, as you know salt will corrode metals (circuit boards). Look for any physical damage, but might be safer to just get a new one since it controls all your power

    So I took a video but can’t upload it. Nothing looks burnt should I still rinse? It has some dust but that’s it. Should RO/DI Rinse it?
