Water in second stage

When rinsing my regulator mouthpiece in the tub, I accidently depressed the purge valve under the tap. I gave it a couple shakes with the purge depressed to drain anything and hung it up to let it dry. I won’t be diving for a couple weeks - do I need to go by my LDS to get some air blown through the hose, or will it be OK?

a little water in your 2nd stage isn’t going to ruin it. it’s be best to blow it out, but if you can’t... shake out as much as you can. it happens ;)

Thank you guys! Shouldn’t have tried to multitask, while tired, after a long day of diving...
