    Welcome to the forum, Rosie

    My understanding is that antifreeze (in above ground capped pipes) is optional. Blowing them out, on the other hand, is not when you expect extended cold (sub 30 degree) temperatures. The amount of antifreeze varies with how many pipes and their length and diameter. You don't want to actually add antifreeze to the pool water, of course. For a general closing procedure, see this link.
