Water contamination can have a detrimental effect on both the electrical and mechanical portions of the tool; therefore a complete examination is required prior to using your tool.
If your electric power tools have been submerged in water for an extended period of time, it is very important that you properly clean, dry, and safety test them before attempting to put them to use. Water is an extremely effective conductor of electricity and failure to properly inspect and test your electric tool could result in an unsafe and dangerous situation. Water contamination can have a detrimental effect on both the electrical and mechanical portions of the tool; therefore a complete examination is required prior to using your tool. We strongly encourage this evaluation and testing be performed by a Bosch Factory or Authorized Service Center or qualified electric motor repair facility.
