I think I have finally figured out a way to water my stock without having to roll up 350 feet of garden hose every time I made an adapter that I can hook up my diesel air compressor to blow the hose out

That will not blow all the water out. The air will move water so the air can move thru then the remaining water will flow back to a low place and freeze. So after blowing the air thru pick up the hose as you move along till you get to the end and the remaining water will run out the end. BTDT

Should work. That's what they use to blow out rv's and camper trailers.

I don't remember how many feet of water line you'll have strung out there, but gene bender has a good point. Any moisture that remains on the hose lining will find its way to a low point and, if enough water builds up at any one point, you will be unable to water again until it thaws.

Maybe you could blow the hose out to start with, then connect the nearest end to a wet/dry vac and let that suck any remaining water for 15 minutes or so? ...Or maybe come back after 15 or 30 minutes and blow it out again, once any remaining water has puddled??

Kansas, I will have to look for one of those! Never seen one.

I deal with cattle and gravity feed cisterns and waterers and so forget, and need to blow out pipe and hoses a lot. That is a lot simpler that the stuff I screw together to adapt......

That one is from Amazon. Just type in garden hose air adapter. I've seen them at local Menards as well.

Cool, my menards expanded a year ago, and likely has it - or will over summer - now. They started out a small/ medium size building but had enough traffic to move all the lumber and garden to new quarters and turn those areas into more retail stuff. I've noticed a lot notpre of that type stuff available now.

Can you run the hose up over a roof or build a bridge of some kind to run it up over? 350ft is a long ways but I put a pvc line from one end of my 100ft shed to the other up to the peak and back down. Lines drains out each end via gravity

I don't think you'll ever get all the water out of 350 feet of hose to keep it from freezing. I hope it works for you, keep us up dated.
