I'm not saying 40 psi is right or wrong just stating what's in my manual.
Do as you please.

If you have your faucets open, and your bottom drains it won't matter how much air pressure you use. You'll never be able to put enough air into the lines to build up any type of pressure to blow a line apart, unless you're using a commercial air compressor, and then you would have to have special fittings to accept the cfm it would take to bust a line. I have compressors from 40hp to battery operated, and I run 90-120psi from the compressor into the water line, and the back pressure guage barely moves.

This year I'd like to take it a step further and blow my lines out but I want to be careful and not use too much air pressure. For those of you that use air to clear your lines what PSI do you set your air compressor to?

Thanks in advance for your help.
If you have a Flagstaff you need to use no more then 25 PSI, all others can use 40-45 Just picking at you Turbo. I was going to assign you an acronym by using your new "Free Advice Giver" name, but once I shortened just using the first letters it just wasn't right

Seriously to the OP, it's perfectly safe to 40PSI. Here are some links if you don't believe us:
