My setup is very similar except that the shower pan s even with the lower edge of the frame so that there is more headroom.
The pump is on the underside of the closet floor by the door.
The pump has plenty of lift to drain the shower pan.
The short P trap and the hose ekkp the pump from sucking air with any water in the pan.
I use the pump as the anti drain back valve and the shower has a foot operated seal that clicks open and shut.

can you post a picture of the foot operated seal? How much do you want for the sump pump?

If you want to see one go the Lowe's and look at the tub drains. You will find several that you push down to seal and push on one side to open.
It seems to work OK.
I have not seen and need as yet to close it since the check valves in the pump keeps the water from flowing back into the shower pan.
