Gary Pools has been installing Speck Pumps in his inground pools against the Manufacturer's Recommendations for many years. These pumps clearly state in Owner's Manual not for permanently installed inground pools. We purchased one of these pumps for our inground pool after being told it was for inground pools. It started running hot...too hot to the touch and caused our breaker to trip many times. After reading the Owner's Manual to troubleshoot possible overload on pump we found it was not to be used in permanently installed pools. We were told it could have burned our house down.
