It depends on what zone you live in. Search the forum for overwintering some great knowledge in here.

Iam in zone 7a so my winter is mild so all I have to do is just make the water have waves on the surface.

I'm a bit confused by your goal - are you trying to keep an opening in the ice? Or just aerate the pond? An aerator will aerate no matter what time of year it is. If it creates enough water movement (likely because you move it closer to the surface) it could also help to keep the pond from freezing over. Lots of variables though -

If it's still pumping air, it's still aerating. I'm not familiar with this particular unit though, but I am confused how you can both filter and aerate on the same unit. Is there an air pump going to the unit? Or is it "aerating" by just stirring up the water?

agitating the surface removes co2 and adds o2

Then I'm sure it will continue to do the same without the filter attached. To be clear, there's no aerator on this unit. It's a fountain feature with some built in filtration. An aerator has an air pump and pushes air through an airstone or membrane of some type. You're just pumping water.

How big is your pond?
