Upstream, found the main water garden or pond.

Here I am getting ready to install my system to survive winter freeze my fish during the winter.

It is very cold in the water and I have to enter the pond. So I bought a protective garment to go in the water.  Boots and pants in one piece, waterproof.

In fall when closing the stream, I lift the envelope (10 cm or 6 inches) from the pond liner and this is a small dam. This prevents the water out of the pond.
Use bricks to stay it in place.
