Not clear to me here if you are a homeowner or a contractor - if homeowner, then you pay the amount he bid when the job is done as agreed on, unless you agree to a change order due to change of conditions beyond what whould be expected (like if he found rotten subflooring that had to be replaced before he could do his work, for instance).

If you are a contractor - then the amount he bid, assuming he did the specified work - adjusted by any approved change orders. If you bid the job but did not get a quote from the sub, then his standard billing rates for time and materials jobs - ask him for an invoice.

Why you paid a tile guy to repair a trap (unless this was a leak in the portion of the drain within a mortar-bed shower base) I can't figure - that is a plumber job by definition unless it was just a matter of tightening up a connection that was left loose - which is VERRRY common because plumbers doing a rough-in commonly leave those loose for the tile or shower/tub guy to adjust to the exact shower/tub drain location. Reason for leaving them loose (assuming plastic or brass pipe) - once tightened the gasket/seal (where there is one) has been compressed, so should not be reused a second time - so they leave them loose so the fitup to the shower/tub is the first (and last) compression of the ring.
