RainBird 3/4 DV Auto Valve

Hey folks im new here so i have a question for you. I cannot bring a hard 3/4 line from my meter where i live so i got told to take the water for my irrigation system off of my 1/2 hose bib. I would like to put in 3 auto valves for my zones using RainBird 3/4 DV Auto Valve. Since these are 3/4" can i use 3/4 to 1/2 threaded adapter? or threaded to barb? I could really use the help on here.



Thanks

Adamj18

Its possible just going to be low flow probably around 5 gpm so size zones within that and make disconnect for winter time. But really if you are going from hose bid you might as well pull a hose
