You should be able to get that at Lowes or Home Depot. Thats where I got mine. Its not always a stock item, but you could always to a couple other reducer combo's to get there as well.

Also Rex sells some barbs, I believe the 5/8 ones are 3/4 threads. I dont see why it matters since you need the reducers anyway, which Lowes caries.

I just ordered 5/8" barbs here. It was the only place I could find them with 3/4" threads. You should be able to find the 5/8"T also. http://plumbing.hardwarestore.com/52...w--680529.aspx
