That is why I buy submersible radios. I can't say I've dropped anything in the toilet but I have had clumsy accidents resulting in spilled drinks and gently run under water. I now have rules, nothing near to be spilled.Ive replaced 2 laptop keyboard in a year. Radios must remain on bathroom sink untouched until hands washed. Rules must be followed. I have a desk queen radio I promised never to take anywhere, of course the time I broke that rule, it got scuffed
Went to use the pit toilet at the launch site to take a leak before heading out on the water.
Noticed that there was no toilet paper available (not surprising) but in my case not a problem.
However, when looking down into the pit, noticed that there was a torn off long shirt sleeve floating at the bottom.
Apparently a previous occupant had to improvise for lack of toilet paper.
In the electrical/electronics department at a Naval Shipyard, we routinely cleaned all manor of equipment that had taken a dip. The base PD & FD often brought us radios that went for a swim, some having fallen overboard into the Napa river and recovered by divers. For cleaning non-ionic soap and distilled water were used, with isoproply alcohol for final rinse & dry in low temp ovens. The radios, big bricks (30 years ago) from Big M were not water tight. The ones from thirty or so feet under in the river didn’t always come back to life. Probably about a 50% or less success rate there. Zero % for the nicad battery packs that went that deep.
