Multiple home winterization air compressor?

I need to know what kind of air compressor would be best for multiple home applications in the same day?

Hello ccsogator.  Welcome to the Community!


I assume you will be using the compressor to blow out water lines either inside unheated buildings or for irrigation lines outside.


In any event, two things come to mind as necessities.


First the obvious, it must be portable.

Whether you get a model with wheels or an even smaller type that you just carry depends on how much reserve tank size you need.  For just blowing out lines, something like a 6 gallon pancake model you can carry around will do, even if you have to let it recharge a couple of times per house.


Second, it must run on standard 120 volts.  Finding 240 volt outlets in each home is unlikely.  Another option would be a gas powered compressor.  These are much more powerful, expensive and probably overkill for what you need to do.


Let me know if this makes sense to you.  Additional information on what you expect to use the compressor for in addition to the above could help narrow down the logical choices.
