    Acrylic you have more options...size, air , whirlpool...

    Enamelled steel is cheaper but you limited on size.

    tub

    Enameled steel tubs are ONLY used because they are cheap. If he has a hole in his tub, it is probably an enameled steel one. Cast iron, and compostites such as Ameriglas, would be the first choices. Enameled steel is not even a close comparison.
