What is the maximum upstream pressure a typical kitchen faucet is rated for?

Neighbors are complaining that they are having problems with their plumbing because the water pressure is too high. They are saying that the pressure in the lines is reaching 100 psi. It seems like a faucet ought to be able to handle that pressure, and I have suggested that maybe the installation of the fixtures is faulty. I know you publish flowrates vs pressure on your website, but I can't find anything about what is the maximum rated pressure. Thank you!
Topics: Care/Maintenance
Depending on your locality, the plumbing codes typical state that the maximum allowable water pressure at your residence shall be no more than 80 psi. If your neighbors are saying that their water pressure is about 100 psi, it is an issue. Your neighbors may need to find a licensed/insured professional plumbing contractor install a pressure regulating valve (set to 60-80 psi) on their water service line to their residence.
