cascade water fall out of 3 X hard shell pond liners ?

How can I make a cascade water fall out of 3 X hard shell pond liners



Basically the pond on the bottom will pump water to the top one and they will all overflow into each other in a 3 step process.


There will be a high one, medium one and the lowest one in the ground.

I need ideas on how to make the water fall.

I am thinking of maybe

1. Drilling a PVC pipe in each one.
2. Cutting a hole in it and using like a dustpan held together with like Silicone
3. Using a spillway
4. Maybe drill some small holes below the water line and use gravity + pressure to make a waterfall out of multiple drill holes.

Thanks.

Yes, I may put some fish in the pond.

I'm not really sure what type yet. Perhaps guppies to eat mosquito larva or some small cichlids.

Tell me if you have any ideas how a cascade water fall could be done with these hard shell pond liners.

Thanks so much!

With fish in mind, especially smaller ones I think you'll want to put some filters over the intakes moving water from one tank to another.
lifegard aquatics has a few different options. Looks like they call them suction/overflow strainer. This is all assuming you will have fish in each level that you want to stay in that level.

Building a liner pond is not hard at all. The pond liners that are available today are strong and durable. The weight of the water helps them hold their shape and even straightens out wrinkles. Here’s a quick how-to guide to help you add this feature to your backyard. https://www.pondpro2000.com/blogs/ho...-a-liner-pond/
