water pressure regulator

HELP! As a marine aquarium hobbiest, I am considering installing a reverse osmosis system to provide pure
water for the aquarium as well as for drinking and cooking. I have well water and the pump controls are currently
set so that the house pressure varies from 22 psi to 45 psi. The RO system that I'm looking at requires input pressure
between 30-40 psi. I could install a different control switch in the pump and set the on-off pressures to achieve that level
but, the pump will start and stop consideralbly more often. Is there a water pressure regulator that I can install
between the house supply line and the RO unit to equalize the pressure at around 35 psi? Or is there a better solution?
I would greatly appreciate your input. Please provide as much detail as you can so I can get the best understanding
possible(I need pictures-----sometimes!!!!Ha Ha!). THANK you in advance for your time! Gene.
