    Technically any air compressor would be strong enough as even though it delivers a small volume of air it does so at a very high psi. So when blowing out your lines they won't violently blow out water like a [high volume] cyclone vac. A compressor would be able to blow a much larger and deeper main drain than a cyclone vac as a cyclone vac maxes out under 10 psi or so. The compressor will just take longer but it will get there eventually.

    Ok perfect. I have a gauge in the compressor that says psi and numbers. What psi should I go up to?

    you don't have to raise it much, you could keep it as low as 15. Just don't go over 60 as that's a lot of psi just in case. You don't want to stress the pvc.
