    I have a BRS reactor, and I need to connect the 1/2" mur-lok tubing it comes with to a 3/4" vinyl hose. For the life of me I can't find anything that'll work. If it's an elbow, even better.

    This is the closest I can find:

    Then I would need to find a barb reducer from 1/2" to 3/4"? I don't have that much room, I'd love a quick elbow that goes from the push in fitting to a 3/4" barb.

    Any ideas?

    I have a connector, it's a reducer, coupler, 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch. I use it for my return pump which has a 1/2 inch outlet and the Utube return which is 3/4 inch

    it's food grade and i've used it in several tanks with no issues, it's primarily used in soda fountain machines

    Aw no prob! Thanks so much for checking. I'm going to Home Depot tomorrow to see if I can find a good solution. I'll probably be able to get a 1/2" to 3/4" barb reducer and then find a 1/2" barb to 1/2" mur-lok. Maybe?

    I also have 1/2" thread to 3/4" hose fitting that fits directly into those BRS reactors...lol

    Next time, just stop by the shop. You'll be surprise at the craps I have for plumbing stuff...lol
