Water soaked iPhone 6s

IPhone 6s was submerged in the pool for a few minutes. Dried it off, won't turn on.

It heated up pretty good for a little while. It has been about 12 hours since it went into the water. Believe there is still some water in the phone.

Is this phone reparable?

@jaws5113 I suggest you treat it just like any other water damaged iPhone. The very first thing you want to do is to not try to restart, sync or otherwise trying to use the phone. This may further damage your phone. The next thing to do is to clean it. Disassemble your phone using these guides . You must remove all EMI shields. If you do not remove those, you might as well not do anything. After you removed those, clean the whole board, connectors and all with +90% isopropyl alcohol. Follow this guide , and even so it was written for a 3G all the points are still pertinent to your phone. While you clean your board, check for any obvious damage, like burned or missing components etc. When it is properly cleaned, replace the battery. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Best thing to do would be to clean it with an ultrasonic cleaner, but if you do not have access to one, this will at least help. Once all this is done, reassemble your phone and reevaluate. Until it is cleaned, everything will only be a guess. Even with all this, water damage has only a small chance to be fully repaired, but at least you can give it a try.

If that sounds like too much too do, take it to a repair shop.
