    Default Air compressor

    Not sure if this is the right place to post so mods feel free to move if you wish. Being on the mobile device it seems I don't see all the forums that I remember from the web page.

    But I am looking for a good air compressor for at home. I have larger ones at my business so anytime I need something done big I can go there. I just need something at home for lowing up tires. But I would like something with a larger tank to be able to low out a water line every fall. This water line is 1-1/2 inch by about 200 feet long. The line oes run down hill mostly though so it does blow out easily except for the low spots in the line. Just wondering what everyone else has at home and have had ood luck with.

    I like this one for tire air up and its light enough to fill with air and use as a portable air tank. I have 2, waited until they went on sale for 39.99.

    It's a hard limit with no budge on that compressor, I have used mine with my nailer, but it's kinda sluggish compared with my 2gallon oiled compressor.

    I don't get 120psi, but I do have some retested propane tanks ( 200lb total) that gives me LOTS of storage. Old refrigeration pump in heated basement and storage in unheated garage. Outlets both places.....

    For bike tires, get a good hand pump with a built in gauge. Much easier and more effective and probably only $20 to $30. Then get the compressor that fills your other needs.

    It sounds like your water line has about 18 or 19 gallons capacity so a back of the envelope calculation would say that a 3 gallon compressor should do it, but just barely. Don't go any smaller.
