Reef octopus skimmer help.

About 2 years into this reef octopus bh2000 and I finally sucked a snail into it. Was running like crap for about a week before I noticed it and by crap I mean the bubble flow wasn't pushing as hard and it kept burping. So I took it apart, got the shell out and put it back together and it keeps burping like every minute. It's definitely not the serene notice I'm used too. The impeller looked fine and I plugged it in under water and it seemed to move water but it's still burping. Any advice on what to do. New impellers are 50 bucks and a new pump is 70 bucks so I'm not sure what I should do.
