Does the pond have any water in it now?
And does it rain where you live?
If you lived near my area the pond would get filled fairly quickly by the rain, but I know some areas are dry.

I think it would be better to fill the pond up over time, as Frodo suggested.

If the pump is hooked to PVC and constantly runs it can melt the PVC and cause leaks. I've had this happen numerous times when my pump got hot (mostly bc of a problem with the tank not filling all the way bc the ancient float lever setup was not working properly anymore).

Also, since some of the water will be going to your house, have you considered some sort of water filtration/softener setup going to the house? Sometimes you can end up with sediment that will coat the pipes and all of the fixtures.
