    Hi, I'm new to the forum, and have a question in regards to winterizing sprinkler systems. I have already used the search, and didn't see what I was looking for. How big of a compressor is needed to blow out the sprinkler lines? If a big one is needed, and you don't have access to one can you hook up two compressors in series to blow the lines out? Thanks in advance for any help.

    It depends on the size of the system. However, the key is High CFM and low PSI. If you do it the other way around, get ready for problems.

    Rather than plagiarize. Take a look at this web site. Jess Stryker has a lot of good info.
