A walk-in bathtub can be a “miracle solution” for households with members whose mobility is limited, whether by age, accident, or illness. The principal issues to be dealt with by the family are generally safety, independence, and convenience.

Although, in some cases, walk-in showers are an alternative, a walk-in bathtub offers many therapeutic benefits in addition to cleansing and hygiene. Tropical Plumbing & Bath has been a leader in sales and installation of walk-in bathtubs and showers for more than a decade.

First Place winner of Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” award, Tropical is a one-stop shop that provides complete bathroom remodeling packages, from design to the plumbing alterations often required by new fixtures. As a licensed general contractor, Tropical has the capability to handle every phase of the installation.

“Our bathtubs and fixtures are high quality and American-made, and we service what we sell,” said Tropical Plumbing & Bath President Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year.”

“The range of styles and accessories available with our tubs is continually expanding. Our consultants and designers are available for free consultations to assess the homeowners’ needs and provide the information necessary to make the right choices. If the household includes members experiencing a loss of mobility and consequently safety and convenience are concerns, there will be a number of alternatives to consider, such as headrests, grab-bars, massage jets, and hand-held showers which can be placed in a number of positions.”

Recently, Kuakini Medical Center chose fully equipped, American-made walk-in bathtubs from Tropical Plumbing & Bath for installations in men’s and women’s senior living facilities. “It was an honor to have our product chosen by Kuakini for their Residential Care facility,” Beeck said. “As general contractors, we were able to handle the entire project for them. The fact that a highly regarded medical and care facility made the decision to install these fixtures demonstrates the increasing acceptance of walk-in tubs.”
