Ducato Oil Filter Major Loss of Oil Problem

My ducato suffered hydro lock after getting stuck in floods, I managed to remove plugs and blow the water out , then did an oil change and engine flush and then fitted new oil and fiat filter, all seemed fine then after two weeks and half a mile after starting up , the red eng management light came on, and then oil started blowing (gushing) from under the engine,, got towed to the garge where they found the oil seal on the filter had been pushed out from the seat in the filter causing the leak, they put a new fliter on and replaced the oil,, but I am worried incase there is a reason why this happened and not just a faulty oil filter,,, Any suggestions,, pos caused by water in the air intake, although it has need cleaned out.
