can a tankless compressor blow out a summer home water lines

A friend asked me to help winterize her small summer cottage. 2 sinks a toilet and stand up shower and a 20 gal water heater.I have a very small tankless compressor rated at 1.0 SCFM at 30 PSI, 120 PSI Max. I have used this to blow pool lines and rv lines but am not sure it will work on a cottage.My plan was to attach it to the outside cold water tap and drain the the water heater. then charge the closed system with air and blow out the faucets an shower and toilet.I am not sure if this little compressor can do the job .Thanks for your thoughts

I've moved your query to the page about blowing out sprinkler lines, as it's the same issue.

The information about how much air you need to do the job is here.
