    I live right on the dividing line of zones 6 & 7 in East Tennessee, and we don't do much to winterize our water feature. We remove the floating plants, keep leaves out, quit feeding the fish at first cool weather and make sure the water level is almost full. We leave the pumps running 24/7. Our pond is appx 1500 gallons and is over 20 years old. We've been doing it this way from the beginning and works for us.
