Designing and remodeling bathrooms with age-friendly features is a specialty of Tropical Plumbing and Bath. Winner of two first-place awards in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s “Hawaii’s Best” annual awards program, the company is a licensed contractor providing quality workmanship to residential and commercial clients in Hawaii for two decades.

Tropical Plumbing president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year,” advises starting your project, whether a complete bathroom renovation or installation of a single fixture, such as a walk-in shower or bathtub, by making an appointment for a free in-home consultation with an experienced bathroom designer.


“You can meet right in your home with one of our designers who will assess the area and scope of work, 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 says.

Beeck notes that walk-in showers are 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 hand-held 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.


As a licensed contractor, Tropical handles all phases of bathroom remodeling, including installation, plumbing, and any structural work required by new fixtures.

Tropical Plumbing and Bath is currently offering a $1,500 discount on single fixture installations of walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs, as well as on complete bathroom renovation. To make an appointment for a free in-home consultation, please call Tropical Plumbing and Bath at 808-847-0970.
