This is how I hookup for sprinkler blowouts-
oops, forgot the description
from top to bottom
1. 3/4" hose to 1/2" air coupler, hose bib fitting, 3/8" fitting for vacuum breakers
2. 3/4" fitting
3. 1/2" fitting
hope that makes sense. I also have every combination up to 1" threads.
I have a few yards that i blow out- I installed a 3/4" Toro quick coupler valve. Hook my air hose up to the coupler key.
I'll take some pics tomorrow (Saturday) and post 'em.
dudes...you are going too slow...you need bigger hoses, bigger compressors and bigger air fittings.
i have a tow behind compressor, large air hoses and large air fittings. on a good day with a laborer we can do 30 plus...solo i am good for at least 20 winterizations.
speed it up, kids and make the $$$.
Here they are - this one is our hook up from hose to BP
Sorry that came over pretty small. I'll try again.
These are a little fuzzy. Sorry. I think it's in my editing.
The end of the fitting is a swivel to twist onto either the fitting that goes into the test ---- for BP, or straight onto a drain valve, boiler drain or other 3/4" fitting. We also have an assortment of 1/8" to 1" fitting to adapt in any situation. Also a quick coupler for a few.
Ball valve is awesome. You can adjust how must air flows through. If for some reason you can only do one zone at a time, turn it half way. 2-4 zones at once, open all the way. Also if there is a problem you can stop the air right there instead of running to the truck.
My personal truck and the compressor. Magnetic signs for the comp. since we rent it.
Close up of compressor. We did get a second compressor today but it was only a 100 CFM. I will do the job OK though for residentials. I'm having employee use it.
