No means of direct blowout port. Searched around outside the building, nothing there or in the valve box....that took extra time to find in the dark.
The way things were plumbed, I had to shut off the cold supply valve to the water heater, and close an ancient gate valve. Then "back feed" the air from an outside hose bibb through the inside plumbing and then out the irrigation pipe that disappeared into the building slab behind that water heater. At least there was a ball valve on the irrigation line and one on the hose bibb.
Why didn't you backfeed the air through one of the sprinkler heads?
