hydraulic pump staying powered!

Hi all, tried searching before posting, but could not find anyone with the same issue.

So the left drain was blocked, which caused a whole load of water to enter enter the trunk/boot area. This water went all over the roofs hydraulic pump and the salmon relay.

Due to this the pump constantly stays on. I unplugged the wiring for it to make it stop. Has anyone encountered this before? Will it be a case of replace the relay (that burnt out) and the pump. Or any DIY methods to sort out the pump constantly staying on?

Any help appreciated

I managed to find a replacement pump with the relay wiring loom for a decent price. So will swap that in. I will try looking in to the old pump to see if I can find the cause of it staying on and update this post. May help someone in the future as it doesn't appear to happen often.
