A well-designed bathroom equipped with the latest fixtures and accessories can become a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation in the home. Whether your goal is a complete bathroom renovation or installation of a new custom-designed walk-in shower, advance planning is the key to a successful project, according to Tropical Plumbing and Bath president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association Remodeler of the Year.Tropical Plumbing provides free in-home consultation as well as a $1,500 discount, regularly offered on a complete bath remodeling package and recently extended to walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs.

“Our experienced bath remodeling specialists are available to meet with clients in their home and at their convenience,” Beeck says. “They will assess the area and scope of work, discuss the family’s needs, including any special requirements for household members with physical challenges, help choose the new fixtures to be installed, provide a preliminary budget and design plan, and set a time frame for completion.”

A licensed contractor for nearly two decades, Tropical Plumbing and Bath handles all phases of bathroom remodeling including installation of fixtures and accessories, flooring and countertops with tile, marble, and granite finishes, cabinetry and structural alterations, and plumbing.


Beeck notes that walk-in showers are currently the company’s most popular installation, often replacing old-fashioned stall showers or bathtubs. Each walk-in shower is customized to the homeowner’s specifications and available with a variety of accessories, including handheld and rainshower-style sprays, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, and seats; there also are wheelchair-accessible models.

Walk-in bathtubs are another specialty of Tropical Plumbing and Bath. Beeck introduced walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii more than a decade ago, and has installed these fixtures in homes and apartments throughout Oahu, as well as at Kuakini Medical Center. As walk-in bathtubs continue to gain in popularity, new styles, sizes and accessories have become available. Tropical’s quality-engineered, fully warrantied acrylic tubs include components such as grab bars, seats, headrests, easy-turn lever-style faucets and hand-held sprays as standard features. There are also models that provide hydrotherapy.

The winner of two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” first-place awards, Tropical Plumbing has de signed and remodeled bathrooms in hundreds of houses and apartments throughout Oahu.
