What do the plans have for that shower? If it has the double waste then they should fix it

The second quote sounds about right. Also ask them what type of waterproofing memberane they use and then look them up. Some brands of membrane have a bad habit of…

Spa pump access?
It doesnt really make a difference. You can easily access the pump from the outside. Just make sure the cover they put on the outside will be watertight. Or at least not…
Glass shower wall
