In simplest terms, an above ground pool pump is a flooded suction pump, which means the water level must be higher than the pump for it to operate, and an inground pump has the ability to draw water up from a level lower than the pump. The engineering and structure of these two different types of pumps is what makes them work the way they do. This means that, in a typical installation, you could use an inground-specific pump on an above ground pool, but not an above ground pump on an inground pool with the water level below the pump.

Do you need a safety cover for an above ground pool?

Generally a safety cover is not required for an above ground pool since the height of the sides of the pool create the barrier to entry. Be sure that none of the pool equipment or piping around your above ground pool could be used to climb up into the pool and always remove the ladder from the pool and store it several feet away from the pool when the pool is not in use. Generally, this will create a barrier of 3-5 feet high (depending upon the height of the pool sidewall) to prevent accidental entry into the pool. Please check with your local city and county as they may have specific requriements for above ground pool installation unique to your area. With all of this being said, the most important part of any pool installation is safety and a safety cover for an above ground pool is one more level of caution that should not be ignored and should be seriously considered regardless of the cost. Pool safety is priceless.
