Upgrading your bathroom with a new custom-designed walk-in shower by Tropical Plumbing and Bath starts with a free in-home consultation with a remodeling specialist.

“Walk-in showers have become our most popular installation, typically replacing old-fashioned stall showers or bathtubs,” says Tropical Plumbing and Bath president Charlie Beeck, a BIA Remodeler of the Year. “They can be ordered as a single fixture or as part of a complete bathroom renovation. Either way, it’s important for the homeowner to schedule a meeting with one of our designers so they can become familiar with all their options in accessories and finishes and we can assess the space available for the project … as well as the alterations we will need to make in existing plumbing.


“Once we have a clear picture of the client’s needs and objectives, we can prepare a preliminary design plan, assist with budgeting, and establish a work schedule.”

Beeck notes that because each walk-in shower is a unique custom design, the homeowner chooses the accessories, which the designer will order, before the actual work begins. These include sprays, both rainshower and hand-held styles, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, seats, and tile and marble finishes; wheelchair-accessibility can also be specified.

As a licensed contractor, Tropical Plumbing handles every phase of bathroom installations, from design to structural alterations. When Beeck founded the company nearly two decades ago, his intention was to address the needs of an aging population for safety and convenience in bathroom design and remodeling.


Tropical pioneered the introduction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii and has installed these fixtures in senior living facilities for men and women 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.

Tropical’s discount of $1,500 on complete bathroom remodeling has recently been extended to both walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs.

The winner of two Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii’s Best” first-place awards, Tropical Plumbing has designed and remodeled bathrooms in hundreds of houses and apartments throughout Oahu. Testimonials from clients acknowledge the company’s reliability and high quality workmanship (see breakout box above).

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.”
