1/2" FPT Adapter with 1/4" Barbed Tee


The Drip Store’s 1/2 inch FPT adapter with 1/4 inch barbed tee allows to run a 1/4 inch drip line or 1/4 inch micro tubing with drip emitters in two directions from an 1/2 inch sprinkler riser. Using the 1/2 inch adapter the user may need to close all other outlets or to convert all outlets to this method to start a drip irrigation system. The adapter allows the use of 1/4 inch drip line or 1/4 inch micro tubing with 1/4 inch connectors emitters or micro sprayers.

  • Retrofit accessories including adapters, reducers and extensions are designed to incorporate a drip outlet or system into an existing sprinkler system, by converting a 1/2” riser in the existing system to a drip irrigation outlet, without disturbing the flow of the other sprinklers on the line.
    Retrofit drip irrigation is controlled either manually or by using an automatic timer. The retrofit adapter can be used to mount onto the 1/2” riser one of many options of drip emitters to water shrubs, baskets, containers and individual plants that the sprinkler head may not cover sufficiently, while a drip outlet can do it with pinpoint efficiency.
    Retrofitting conventional sprinkler systems to low flow, water saving drip systems requires a few simple steps that include the evaluation of the areas to be watered. While large areas such as lawns are best watered by sprinklers, other areas, such as shrubs, roses or individual plants, can be irrigated more efficiently by using one of our retrofit systems.
