Can a pond run throughout the winter?
Maintenance is the determining factor in keeping pumps and waterfalls running in the winter. The primary maintenance responsibility at this time is to make sure there is enough water for the pump to operate properly.
During the winter months, the usual water supply options are not available. Outdoor water spigots and automatic water fill valves should be turned off to prevent pipes from freezing and cracking.
Therefore, pond owners who run their systems during the winter will need to find an alternate water source to replenish their pond. Water can be supplied from a hose run from inside the house or by making multiple trips with a five-gallon bucket. Generally speaking, itís not uncommon to have to go out a few times a month during the winter to top off the pond, as water will evaporate slowly.
