Well, not so sure about the carpet and flooring analogy. Carpet isn't prone to being installed on a ghost floor.
In the construction world there are often multiple others involved in construction projects. Communication is key. In all reality it's unlikely the paver guy will ever backfill and compact a new pool.
I'm not saying it'll never happen, but it's unlikely.
Next is the pool installer most likely won't even communicate the necessity of proper backfill and compaction to their subs. In my area I only know of ONE pool contractor that actually is on site every minute of the time that their subs are on site.
If you want the work and don't wanna be liable for settlement - you must communicate appropriately, and you can't play hardball or you won't see the job. A
Veteran contractor like me, who knows how to gets results will snatch it right up.
