Replacing 3/4" Hunter PGP head with 1/2" Drip line kit on 3/4" pipe.

I am endeavouring to replace a blanked off PGP pipe end with a drip line kit. Can't find a kit in 3/4" and I am not sure if I can simply use a 3/4 to 1/2 reducer and install the kit on that. Can I do so without any issues?
Many thanks

What drip kit? Make and model, please. As for pipe sizes, no big deal.

I'm looking to install an Antelco A81305 1/2 in. Sprinkler Riser To Drip Irrigation Conversion Kit. I have around 12 bushes and 150 sq ft

I'm not sure what filtration that kit has, if any. Your city water is supposedly filtered and then some, but it is still customary for pros to have fine-mesh drip filtration plumbed into the sprinkler system before any of the sprinkler water gets to the drip components.

Our city water is pretty well filtered :) !

Should I install a filter ahead of this kit?
I have no documentation as the system was installed back in 1999 (way before we bought the house) and the firm that did it is out of business :( !

Maybe see how it goes with the kit, and if it all clogs up, buy another drip kit, along with a filter. Or get the filter now, and save yourself grief down the line.
