To properly prepare my sprinklers to winter, I need to blow it with air compressor. For this, I need to connect 1/4 in air compressor to 1 in copper pipe or T. How can I do that? Thank you.

Fitting for sprinklers
by: Bill

I've moved your question to the forum about blowing out air lines and sprinklers.

Much of the information you are looking for is already here.

Specifically, visit the plumbing store again, purchase a sweat to thread copper fitting to fit the copper tube, and reducing couplers to get the fitting size down to that needed.

Sweat the copper into the 1" pipe, and using pipe dope, add the reducers to the point where you have the female or male thread for your compressor.

Or, acquire one of the many air line to hose bib interface devices already on the market, and read the page on this site about connecting air lines to sprinkler lines here:
