How to Fix Water Damaged iPhone

I recently dropped my iPhone 5 in a pool. I then decided to take it apart to let it dry out. After that I put it together then put it in rice for a few days. I then tried to power it on. It powered on but turned off after a few seconds.
Will Apple repair or possibly replace my iPhone for a fee even though I took it apart once before? Anyone would give me a hand about how to fix my water damaged iPhone 4?
