Pressure reduction at faucet

I am installing a under the counter water filter and I need the water pressure to be 60 PSI. My water pressure is about 80 to 85 last time I checked. What type of pressure reduction valve can I use on just that one fixture. I would like to leave the pressure be in the rest of the house.

Do all in line filters require that the PSI not be above 60? I would look for a different filter?

You can use any PRV to drop the pressure. Most are adjustable between 25 and 75psi.

But I do agree with ShortyLong. I haven't run into a filter that needs a PRV. Is it a reverse osmosis filter?

Thanks for the advice, I went with a more robust filter housing.
