3/4" PVC > 1/4" Quick Connect

Does anyone know if there is some sort of T adapter that I can use to hook up a 1/4 hose to a 3/4" PVC pipe? I need this for a gravity fed ATO. Something sorta like a saddle clamp used on a copper line. I don't need it to actually punch the hole or anything, I

just the same sort of hook up. The 3/4" line will be coming out of a Brute can and I want to hook a 1/4 lie up to it. If not I think I can do a T in the PVC line with a male adapter on the end and fine a 1/4" quick connect end cap.

I ran up to Lowe's at lunch and this is the best I could come up with. This is a 3/4" slip / thread, a 3/4" > 1/2" thread reducer and a 1/2" > 1/4" quick connect adapter. Not exactly sexy but it'll work.

Ahh the joys of standing in the plumbing aisle attempting to screw various parts together. Looks like your solution should work
