Gopro 5 water logged

Got a GoPro 5 as a gift and took it to bali for a trip away , first time a took it in the water it filled up totally not happy . Hey be used these cameras for a little ng time with the housings and never had any problems at all , to get this model that is advertised as completely waterproof and fill up on my first water visit is totally unacceptable. As I don’t have any paperwork for the camera coz it was a gift I’m assuming it’s bad luck or is there something that can be done so as I’m not out of pocket to much cash . I love these cameras and have a lot of pleasure over the years using them I hope that can continue in the future ... 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
