This is a follow up or a continuation of this thread
Here is what I have

And I nee d to insert an 1" female to female Orbit in line sprinkler valve between the green handle valve and the hose
It is 1" because this is what I got , the delta cost for going to 3/4" does not make the things simpler

everything that I have there is 1/2" and I am not sure what is the best way to do this or if it is OK to do this

The idea here is to make sure that the system needs two valves to fail in order to flood my house (or the hose and the main valve)
I want to make sure that while I am away if something breaks it has to be the control valve and either piping or another valve at the same time in order to have a serious flood problem

Not you again. Unthread the 1/2 quick connect hose adapter from the ball valve, thread a 1/2nipple into the ball valve, thread a 1x 1/2 bushing on that, thread the irrigation valve on the 1x1/2 bushing, thread a 1x1/2 bushing in the outlet of the irrigation valve then thread the 1/2 quick connect hose adapter to that.

Irrigation systems must have backflow prevention to protect water supply.
The type of valve you have is typically used "in" ground.
Anti siphon type is what is used above ground.

I was hopping for something shorter :) I knew that with the right number of adapters I will be able to do it, thank you!
