air compressor to blow out my 3 zone sprinkler system

Hello folks,
I am trying to figure out what type of an air compressor I need to blow out the water from my sprinkler system.
We have a 3 zone system which server a property that is about 1/3 an acre.
Id like to purchase an electrical one if possible and hopefully be able to use it for other purposes around the house/yard.

Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Never have tried it myself, nut I've wondered why a large shop vac equipped to blow wouldn't work.

Have never seen an electric homeowner compressor used. For mine I always rented a gasoline tow behind and split cost with a few neighbors.

shop-vacs don't seal to create the pressure needed to blow out sprinklers.

I am trying to stop paying $50 to $60 every fall and pay a bit of money and be self sufficient.
