    Can I change out our plastic sink faucet for a "residential" metal one? I getting help with this under plumbing, but did not get help. I know it has to be low profile. Anyone?

    I replaced ours with a laundry tub faucet from Home Depot. Center to center distance was a little longer so I had to elongate the holes a bit for the stems to drop in.

    Bathroom faucets are 4" centers but usually have stationary short spouts. I found the laundry tub faucet (also 4" centers), which was all metal, with a longer, moveable spout ... so I could easily fill pitchers or wash larger cookware. (Happy wife! [;)])

    We also need it to have a threaded removable aerator. We remove it to connect our reverse osmosis filter system; we use it to make our drinking water.

    The short answer: yes.

    There's nothing special there to prevent you except space around it.

    You can go with an RV faucet that gives you a tall neck but it screws off when you pop down. I stopped taking mine off once I realized my beds slide in but don't hit the sink.

    You can use a Bar faucet. Check the height you may even be able to use a high neck style.

    My neck is removable.
    I bought the new high rise to replace the original and only swapped the neck.
