Bathtub and unit around tub recommendations

frank300June 13, 2012

A few years ago I had an old bathtub painted because of the hard water stains and now it is peeling off.

I know a new cast iron tub and a steel tub are 2 options and there may be others. What option do you think is best and why?

I also know I can have a vinyl, acrylic, or fiberglass unit around the tub and perhaps other choices. What option do you think is best and why?

Thanks
