Hi, Hydrostatic lock aka "Water lock" is a abnormal condition, which occurs when water is ingested by the engine in a certain quantity. The specific quantity necessary varies by engine to engine. The problem is one of basic physics -- liquids are non-compressible things. Depending upon specifics of operating conditions, engine design, and general engine health, this sudden stopping of the piston by a non-compressible mass can cause damage such as a broken piston, bent or broken connrod, shattering of engine castings, or even breakage of the crankshaft.
