Customizing walk-in showers, bathtubs
A custom designed walk-in shower, fully equipped with an array of features and accessories for your comfort and convenience, is just a phone call away. Award-winning bathroom remodeler Tropical Plumbing and Bath offers free in-home consultation — an opportunity to meet with an experienced bathroom remodeling specialist who will assist with selections, prepare a preliminary design plan and budget, and set up a work schedule.
Walk-in showers are Tropical Plumbing and Bath’s most popular installation according to company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Remodeler of the Year.”
“When we install one of our custom-designed showers as a single fixture, usually replacing an old-fashioned stall shower or bathtub, or as part of a complete bathroom renovation, we first interview the client in their home and assess the space. Then we review the accessories, features and finishes they’ve chosen, and put it all together to create the “perfect shower.”
Options include a variety of sprays, which may be overhead, rainshower or hand-held with varying intensities ranging from gentle to massage, seating, compartments for soaps and shampoos, grab bars, non slip floors, and tile and travertine finishes. Extra-wide, barrier-free models can be specified for wheelchair accessibility.
Age-friendly designs are a specialty of Tropical Plumbing and Bath, which pioneered the introduction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii two decades ago and installed them in senior living facilities for men and women at Kuakini Medical Center.
“When we introduced walk-in tubs as a bathroom remodeling feature, people in Hawaii were familiar with the beneficial effects of immersion in water with controlled temperature through use of the furo. However, the walk-in bathtubs offer many additional benefits and are now chosen for relaxation and to soothe muscles stressed by work or sport as well as for their safety features. As they continue to gain popularity, new styles, sizes and accessories become available, including models that provide hydrotherapy. The high-quality acrylic tubs we sell and install are made in the USA and fully warrantied,” Beeck says.
A $1,500 discount is offered on walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs, as well as on complete bathroom renovation.
Tropical Plumbing and Bath has been a licensed contractor in Hawaii for three decades and is a two-time winner of First Place awards in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s annual “Hawaii’s Best” awards program. They have also received testimonials from clients acknowledging the company’s reliability and high-quality workmanship (see inset).

“Tropical Plumbing and Bath remodeled my 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!”
