If your waterfall moves at least 200gph, it can run throughout the winter. You must be careful with ponds that have long or slow moving streams and waterfalls. Ice dams can form around these areas and divert water over the liner out of your pond. Depending on the climate and other factors, you may or may not want to run your pump and filter system through the winter.
The primary maintenance responsibility at this time is to make sure there is enough water for the pump to operate properly. Outdoor water spigots and automatic water fill valves are should be turned off by now. Owners who run their systems during the winter will need to find alternate ways to replenish their pond.
