Noob here. I am sure this has been answered before but for some reason I can't find it; sorry!
I am looking to purchase an air compressor to winterize my in ground pool. It is a basic 12x24 kidney shape design where the deep end is 6 feet not 8 feet. 1 skimmer, 2 deep end drains (normal Ma code) and 4 returns with a Polaris auto cleaner return. I have the basic knowledge how to winterize but need to know the basic air compressor specifications.
I am looking for the proper specs required of an air compressor to blow out the lines and drain.
I was looking at the Porter Cable 3.5 gallon that specs say has 3.5 scam @ 40 psi and 2.6 scfm @ 90 psi. Here is the one I'm looking at. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Porter-Ca...ct%7CNF%7C2day
Also, I was looking at the Campbell Hausfield 6 gallon which has 3.5 scam @ 40 psi.http://www.walmart.com/ip/21283636?w...3552&veh=se em
Also, looking at the Craftsman 6 gallon pancake http://www.sears.com/craftsman-6-gal...p-00916575000P
I would appreciate your suggestions on what I need to be able to blow out the lines and which compressor ( or others) if you have any suggestions.
I have read where some compressors could not keep up a constant cfm in order to properly blow out the returns and drain.
