I use compressed air to blow my water lines, but I use a bicycle pump instead of my air compressor. My air compressor produces an oily residue (as evident when I drain the condesate out of the tank), and I just don't want that residue in my drinking water lines.

It don't take a lot of extra effort with the bike pump.

I use that air compressor to paint with and have a water seperator as well as an in line filter to the hose. Since it's been that way for quite a while I didn't think to mention it. mtnguy makes a very good point to take into consideration when using an air compressor.
