Need some help in making an attachment for a pull behind trailer compressor. I need to make a tool to hook up to a backflow preventer that snaps on the compressor hose to blow out systems. thanks in advance.

Not sure if this will work for you if you are doing a lot of blowouts but this worked nicely for my home system. I just took my blow-off attachment and wrapped electrical tape around the end in a cone shape until it formed a nice seal on my backflow preventer. It worked really well but not sure how it will work all day long. I am not sure you can just make one attachment to work on everyones system depending on how they are designed...my quick fix is very universal.

on both systems I blow out, the quick connect that attaches to tools threaded right in to the backflow preventer. I hooked the hose to the compressor, and to the quick connect and poof (no pun intended), I had air.
