sprinkler blowouts

I have been doing fall clean up and areating for several years. I want to start doing sprinkler blow outs. I need some info from someone experienced in doing this.
-how big of a compressor do i need for residential service, tank volume , and horse power?
- do most people just use electric and then plug into homeowners power ?
how much of an investment would i expect to put down on a used compressor for this type of job?

i was working a full time job that i lost a month ago. so i do have alot more time on my hands . so im not sure if i need to buy a big one or not . or if the cost of renting would pay off.
I remember the first year i did aerating i rented for awhile and then bought my own machine it paid for itself in 3 months , one season , even with a full time job .
so im wanting to test the waters a bit so maybe renting would be the way to go.
