Designing “age friendly” bathrooms is a specialty of Tropical Plumbing & Bath. When limited mobility of household members is a consideration, homeowners often specify walk-in bathtubs and showers, either to replace or augment existing bathing facilities.

A wide variety of models is available from Tropical Plumbing & Bath, which, as a general contractor, also installs the fixtures and provides the necessary plumbing for new construction and remodeling for single family homes, townhomes and apartments. Tropical Plumbing & Bath is Hawaii’s leading resource for sales and installation of high quality walk-in bathtubs and showers, which are fully warrantied and made in the U.S.

Among the features designed for safety and ease of operation are built-in seat and grab bars, easy-turn lever style faucets and built-in or hand-held showers. There are also models that provide hydrotherapy to soothe tired muscles and soak away stiffness and stress.

Company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year,” said, “Upgrading the bathroom to a private oasis in the home for relaxation and rejuvenation is a growing trend. Walk-in bathtubs and showers are part of this trend, with people living longer and, generally, healthier lives, but also preparing for the future and possible lessened mobility,” Beeck said.
