If upgrading bathing facilities in your home is a goal for the new year, you may want to begin considering your options.

Replacing an old-fashioned stall shower or bathtub with a new, convenient, well-equipped walk-in shower is a choice more and more homeowners are making. Tropical Plumbing and Bath specializes in walk-in showers — the award-winning remodeler’s most popular installation is now available with a $1,500 discount. Company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association of Hawaii “Remodeler of the Year,” advises that the best way to get started with a bathroom upgrade, or complete renovation — also offered at a $1,500 discount — is to make an appointment for a free on-site consultation.

“All our walk-in showers are custom-designed to the homeowner’s specifications,” Beeck said. “One of our experienced bathroom designers will meet with you to assess the space, discuss the family’s needs, including any special requirements for household members with physical challenges, choose the new fixtures to be installed, provide a preliminary budget and design plan, and set a time frame for completion.”


He noted that walk-in showers can be ordered with an assortment of accessories and special features, including sprays of varying intensities, both hand-held and overhead, a variety of tile and marble finishes, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, and seats.

Completely barrier-free and wheelchair accessible designs can be specified.

Beeck commented that people have become more health conscious and are making a strong connection between health and hygiene. The therapeutic benefits of bathing are also contributing to the popularity of both walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs. Beeck pioneered the introduction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii more than a decade ago and has installed these fixtures in men’s and women’s senior living facilities in Kuakini Medical Center.

Tropical Plumbing is currently offering a courtesy discount of $1,500 on walk-in bathtubs, as well as on walk-in showers.


Tropical Plumbing handles all phases of bathroom remodeling, including installation, plumbing, and any structural work required by new fixtures. A licensed contractor in Hawaii for nearly 25 years, Tropical Plumbing and Bath has received two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” First Place Awards.

They have remodeled hundreds of bathrooms in apartments and homes on Oahu and received testimonials from satisfied clients.

One condominium owner wrote: “Tropical Plumbing and Bath remodeled my condominium’s master bath and guest bath. The tub in the master bath was removed and now I have a beautiful walk-in shower. The guys did an excellent job in the shortest amount of time — on time, and thoroughly cleaned up the debris. I was thrilled with the end result and almost want to pat myself on the back for choosing Tropical Plumbing and Bath! Their obvious expertise and quality of work is simply outstanding.”
