    It would be best to take it apart and dry everything. There's a good chance the brushes,magnet,and bearings will rust up pretty quick. I would take it to a electric motor shop and have them look over it before I put power to it.

    I can promise you one thing, if it were me, I wouldn't be anywhere near it when it got powered up the first time!

    I took it to a pump repair place by me. The guy said that he will put it in the oven and bake. He said as long as I didn't put power to it, it should be ok. Hope he is right. Thanks guys for the advice.

    Sure there is flex pipe you can use. Spiral-reinforced PVC flex tubing works on both suction and (depending on system pressures) outlet.

    I have worked on lots of pool pumps that have been submerged for one reason or another.

    The bearings are either sealed or ceramic and the motors are meant for wet locations.

    I personally don't think you will have any problems.
