Default Waterlogged substrate

Ever since the waterfall in the viv leaked, the substrate has been completely waterlogged. Iíve used coir pellets before to soak up some of the water but it keeps coming back, and now the plants are starting to rot. Anyone got any suggestions? I canít easily replace the substrate.

I'm pretty sure that replacing the substrate is the only answer. The plants are rotting as the roots are waterlogged.
