Preparing for winter

Upstream, it's the main water garden or pond.

Here I am getting ready to install my system to keep my fish safe during the winter (de-icer).

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

Preparing for winter

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.
