Yes, although it voids any factory warranty that came with it. I bought a 12x24 above grond pool, 4 feet deep. I used a backhoe to dig & a transit to level the hole. I buried it to 3 ft. Built a deck all around it & it's been in the ground 10 years now. No problems the only caution is when the pool is filled with water, be very careful when back filling the dirt around the walls. I did it with a Bobcat & almost caved in & destroyed the enitre job. Other than that, no problems

Can you use an above ground pool pump for an inground pool?

Generally...no. 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.
