Waterfals skimmers and the like are the usual suspreacts for water leaks and down the road when a leak surfaces trying to find the cause can be very time consuming caulking rubber to rothers is possible but not a great idea. best advice I could give is WAY OVERSIZE the liner arIund the falls and make some high sides so any splashing is controlled and collected back into the pond .

Agree...just make sure your rocks, your waterfall and weir have a liner under it. The liner should be pitched toward the pond and concave shaped so that if any water gets around, under or over the rocks, it can only go one place...back down into the pond.
If your liner isn't big enough, you can add another liner to the pond liner, just make sure it fully overlaps the pond liner.

About cutting the hose...I guess it depends on what type of hose it is. Most will be OK, but some of those corrugated hoses have specific ends for using hose clamps. What type of hose is it? Can you post a picture?

Like pocono said depends on the type of hose but generaly any hose for a fish pond can be cut and it should be made relatively as short as possible to lesson head pressure so you get the max water flow out of your pump. You can always add more latter if you need to

Good point. You don't want to push water through any more hose than you have to.
