Maximizing bathing benefits
Bathing is an essential of good hygiene, but it can also provide many additional benefits such as stimulating circulation and soothing stressed muscles. A well-designed walk-in shower or walk-in bathtub can also create a quiet, private retreat for relaxation.
Tropical Plumbing and Bath specializes in customized walk-in showers that provide safety, convenience and a variety of accessories that can be specified in a free in-home consultation with a designer. Shower sprays may be overhead, rainshower style or hand-held with varying intensities from gentle to massage. Seating can be adjusted at various levels to accommodate the user, and grab bars can be installed both in the shower and at various locations in the bathroom. Additional accessories include compartments for soaps and shampoos, and easy-to-turn level-style faucets installed at convenient, reachable locations. Tile and travertine finishes for the shower and countertops can be chosen from a wide selection along with non-slip floor surfaces.
Company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year,” advises starting your bathroom renovation with a consultation in your home with a Tropical Plumbing and Bath designer who will acquaint you with all your options and assist in making the best choices. They prepare a preliminary design plan and budget as well as set a schedule for completion of the work. He points out that the consultation is an opportunity to discuss particular household needs with regard to mobility and safety issues of older family members, and special designs for wheelchair accessibility.
Beeck 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 well as in homes and apartments throughout Oahu. As walk-in bathtubs continue to gain in popularity, new styles, sizes and accessories have become available, including models that include shower sprays and provide hydrotherapy.
The $1,500 discount available on complete bathroom renovations is currently ex tended to installations of both walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs.
As a licensed contractor in Hawaii for more than two decades, Tropical Plumbing and Bath has won two First Place Awards in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s annual “Hawaii’s Best” awards program. Testimonials from clients acknowledge the company’s reliability and high-quality workmanship (see inset).
