Ive rinsed my K-5 in tap water several times (after the beach, climbing a mountain, or my hands god to greasy) always with a WR lens such as DA18-55WR or DA*16-50 and using low presure tap water. Never had an issue. Just make sure all the ports are properly closed and remove the viewfinder eyecup. After, wipe any water drops from flash housing, buttons, lens mount, viewfinder and anywhere you can see water accumulation.

Some substances really only respond to use of water, chocolate-milk is one of them.
