Huawei P20 Pro fallen into the water - What to do?

When you work with the Huawei P20 Pro, it can always happen that the smartphone comes into contact with water. Whether the Huawei P20 Pro falls into the pool, is forgotten in the swimming trunks by the sea, or falls into the toilet in the bathroom. All this is possible.

But what do you have to do if the Huawei P20 Pro has fallen into water?

These instructions will help you to do this

Huawei P20 Pro

First of all, it is important to know that the Huawei P20 Pro is waterproof to IP67 certification.

In plain language: Protection against temporary submersion in a pool with a maximum depth of 1 meter.

There is therefore no danger of a technical defect in the bathroom. Here the device simply dries off and is good.

The prerequisite is always:

Get the Huawei P20 Pro out of the water as quickly as possible. Afterwards, please note the following:

For fresh water with a depth of more than one meter

Here you should dry the device and then switch it off. Remove a protective case if you have attached one. Place the Huawei P20 Pro in a bowl of rice and wait about 12 hours. The device can then usually be used again without any problems.

In salt water (sea)

Here it is very important that you rinse the Huawei P20 Pro immediately with fresh water, otherwise the salt will settle in the openings etc. and the appliance will start to rust over time.

Afterwards, you should also follow the same procedure as for fresh water (described above).

Now you know what to do if the Huawei P20 Pro has been in contact with freshwater or salt water and was deeper than one meter in the water.
