        Bathing is an essential of good hygiene, but it can also provide
many additional benefits such as stimulating circula- tion and soothing stressed muscles. A well-designed walk-in shower or walk-in bathtub can also create a quiet, private retreat for re- laxation.
Tropical Plumbing and Bath specializes in cus- tomized walk-in showers that provide safety, con- venience and a variety of accessories that can be
specified in a free in-home consultation with a design- er. 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 in- stalled both in the shower and at various locations in the bathroom. Addi- tional 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 counter- tops can be chosen from a wide selection along with non-slip floor surfaces.
Company president Charlie Beeck, a Building Industry Association “Re- modeler of the Year,” advis- es starting your bathroom renovation with a consul- tation 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 par- ticular household needs with regard to mobility and safety issues of older family members, and spe- cial designs for wheelchair accessibility.
Beeck pioneered the intro- duction of walk-in bathtubs in Hawaii and has installed these fixtures in senior living facili- ties for men and women at KuakiniMedicalCenteraswell 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 avail- able on complete bathroom renovations is currently ex-
tended to installations of both walk-in showers and walk-in bathtubs.
