Oh no! Which end fell in the tank? If it is the end opposite the plug, then open the case and remove the wifi board. Be sure to clear off any salt water, using RO water or rubbing alcohol. Then dry it overnight in a bag of dry rice.

Unfortunately the entire unit fell in. My own fault that it happened.

So do the above with every component inside the light, and thoroughly dry the case.

I can do this for you in our shop if you would like for the cost of shipping and parts/labor.

The last time this happened they waited a few days to do this. The drivers went bad, and there was some corrosion on one of the LED boards. If you rinse them with RO water or rubbing alcohol right away that will get rid of any remaining salt and help prevent corrosion.
