T reducers

I am setting up my very first drip irrigation system and I have the general idea how it works. The one thing that I am stumped on is the supply line to the drip lines. I was planning on using an 1/2" supply down to a 1/4" supply line. How do I step down the sizes. I was planning on using a T fitting that reduces down to 1/4 but I can not find one anywhere. Any help would be great.

You do not need any 1/2-to-1/4 reducers on a drip installation. The 1/4-inch tubing is for feeding individual outlets. You use the 1/2 inch drip tubing for all the supply plumbing, and emitters are the interface between the 1/2-inch tubing and 1/4-inch tubing.
