Does anyone know where I can get a bulkhead (not purchased yet, so size doesn't matter) to 1/4" push connect adapter locally? This will be for the auto-topup we're building.

I can order one online, but I don't want to pay $20 shipping for a $5 part.

Two parts:

1) - 1/2" threaded bulkhead (usually most LFS have them)
2) - 1/2" Male NPT to 1/4" tubing quick connect fitting (most home depot stores carries them)

Awesome! Thank you :)

Hopefully it'll be easy to find. It took me an hour and three associates to find "egg crate" the last time I was in.

Would this work in a bulkhead (of the single threaded variety, not double threaded)?

I think it should.

Not really... Those are meant to push in to a larger John Guest style fitting (it's a JG to JG adapter).

What you want is a reducing bushing in the case of a nonthreaded bulkhead - slip (to fit inside the bulkhead, and you have to cement them together same as for any other PVC connections) to threaded (that you then thread the JG-to-threaded adapter into).

Okay . . . how about this?

I'm pretty sure that's it. I passed over it the first time as I thought it went 1/4" threads --->1/2" Quick Connect, but I'm pretty sure it goes 1/2" threads --->1/4" Quick Connect.

The Country Hills Home Depot (a stones thrown from my place) seems to have a lot of this stuff in stock, so maybe I should just go wander around the store for a bit.

That's the fitting I mentioned yes.
