We recommend closing pools when the water gets below 60 degrees, when the algae growth is significantly reduced. If your water is not getting that cold, trying to keep it clear is going to be a challenge for that period of time. There is no reason to blow out any pipes, that is to prevent freeze damage. The best bet would be raise the FC up to shock level for your CYA, add polyquat 60 algaecide, and put on an opaque cover. Then leave the equipment turned off. Likely you will open to a green pool anyway, but a SLAM will take care of that.
