Interesting idea. I have a question though. Although we don't get a lot of hard freezes where I am, I have been on early morning patrol breaking up water tanks with an axe for stock on the occasional hard freeze. Running water is harder to freeze than still water; but will drawing water off the bottom of the tank create enough current to break the surface tension of the top water? Streams can crust over even hard freeze while the stream underneath flows normally; but still requires the surface ice to be broken for the stock.
The kids must love the luge course the hose creates downhill of the tank! Open a round bale for a landing zone, grab some cardboard, and they could stay entertained all day.

I have a thought or two but could use additional information. Can you post a photo of the water tank and where it is situated?
A berm makes a great wind break. And we all like to break wind once in a while. Like this tiny ad:
