Don't forget to run your pool pump during this cold weather

In addition to wrapping exposed pipes, you should run your pool pump during the hard freezes the next few nights. The few extra dollars of electricity are much better than having pool plumbing issues.

Oh. I misread. Thought you were suggesting the whole pool. Can lead to issues down here.

I have an old DE filter that I do not touch for fear of leaking or breaking. I don;t even look at it cross. I will just run the pool.

I have never drained the pump but we only get 1 or 2 hard freezes a year. I run the pump a couple of hours every day throughout the winter to keep up the chlorine level (it's a saltwater system) and keep the pool relatively clean. I'll just run it at night.
