Step into a sensible choice for your bath

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

The innovative walk-in bathtub is a welcome solution to the concerns many seniors and others with limited mobility face when confronted with the prospect of climbing into a traditional bathtub. Rather than take the chance of slipping and falling, they may settle for a shower or a sponge bath, forgoing the pleasurable and often therapeutic experience of immersing in a tub of warm water.


Tropical Plumbing’s walk-in bathtub, made by American Standard in the U.S.A., incorporates numerous custom features such as a built-in or hand-held shower, easy-turn style faucets, water jet massage, inline heater and Quick Drain system. With this exclusive patented Quick Drain system, your walk-in tub will drain out in less than two minutes.

The walk-in door — designed for easy entry and warrantied against leaking — built-in chair-height seat, built-in handrail and textured tub floor allow independence and increase safety. Many additional features include a neck rest, whirlpool heater, chromatherapy, aromatherapy and many other design details that make Tropical’s tubs the premier walk-in bathtub on the market today.

“The walk-in bathtub is a great addition to any home, particularly one that includes disabled family members or seniors who value their independence,” said Tropical Plumbing & Walk-In Bathtub owner Charlie Beeck. “We have been installing this tub in houses and apartments throughout Oahu and the feedback we get from the homeowners has been truly gratifying. It fills a need in many households. Outside of the mobility issue, you can literally turn your bathroom into an in-home spa with its jetted whirlpool, air bath or combination massage systems.”


Beeck noted that Tropical can adjust the plumbing system in most bathrooms to accommodate this tub. It is supported with a freestanding metal frame for added strength and security, and its non-corrosive aluminum and durable cast brass construction maintains strength and a watertight seal. The high quality, seamless acrylic surface retains heat and is easy to clean.
