You might be able to glue it with some pretty crazy glues, but I don't think anything that would work for that load would be fish safe. I'd definitely just replace it.

I would just super glue it.  I have done this to another Eheim filter and it has been working fine for years.  Super glue is fish safe.


Yeah I super glued it and it works really well now. Thank you

Order a spare impeller. Once failures like this happen, its from the material becoming brittle with age. Impeller fins might snap donw the line and if you can't find them to super glue them back on you'll be needing a new impeller. Once you have your next failure swap in the new one and you'll be set for a good long time. If you can find a broken impeller fin, you can glue it back. But once you start getting too many patch jobs it's ideal to be running the new impeller.
