Hi I was just finished making 100lt of water for water change when after circulating the water in the drum I heard a bang and saw a flash inside the container. I immediately switched of the pump and heater and found that the wavemaker that I was using for circulation shorted out. There was a slight smell of burn in this water and the water looks a little dark only very slightly.... I just wanted to know if I can still use this water for the water change

As there was no prolonged period for electrolysis I would say the water should be OK. Let it stir with another pump for a while and to give the bit of gases that are there are time to evaporate.

It the same as having a heater pop in your sump. Remove the broken heater. Nobody did a 100% water change there and then.
