    I have done this for 4 years. Just drain the pool by at least a 1/3. I live in Buffalo so we have similar winters. I did winterize with tons of bleach and 2 bags of shock beforehand.

    Have left our newest one up two winters now. Granted here in Oklahoma it doesn't stay freezing for long but it has frozen around the sides. The pump stays running all winter. Farther north it'd be ideal to drain below the lowest opening and cover or periodically check the chemicals so it doesn't turn green once it warms up. But these pools are pretty resilient.
