Broken Impeller pins

Anyone know how to fix this broken pins before?

Just got back from vacation and hear some noise from the BK DC 180 skimmer, after open the pump and inspect, I noticed a snail stuck in the impeller and caused 19 pins broken. This cause the performance of my skimmer way off, as it not generate as much bubble as before. Any recommend on how to fix it?

You can run it as is but will likely notice a minor impact on performance. You could try to glue the pins back on but it’s not likely they would hoild. The only other option would be to replace the impeller as we don’t sell just the needle wheel. If that is an RD3, this is the replacement impeller.
