Adapter from street water to compressor?

Hello! I was wondering if anybody has any ideas how to adapt the street water connection to the standard compressor fittings? Thanks, Richard

You shouldn't have any trouble finding the fittings you need at any home improvement store like Lowes or HD. You will probably need to go between the plumbing department's selection of brass fittings and the tool department's selection of compressor fittings to get the threads to match up.

I find Lowes has an excellent selection of brass fittings in the easy open packages. Mine took about 4 different fittings and I sealed the joints with Teflon tape. Works like a charm for winterizing.

If this is what you are after they now sell a plastic one at most camp stores.

If you want to make one the air valve should be available at an auto parts.
