Winterize Sprinkler Systems and Outdoor Faucets Adaptor: Air Compressor to Female Garden Hose Faucet with Shut Off Valve
Do you want to winterize your underground sprinkler system, and outdoor faucets? This hard-to-find air-compressor adapter allows you to easily connect an air compressor to blowout underground sprinkler system or any outdoor faucet or spigot. The flexible hose allows the adapter to access tight spaces. One end of the adapter has a quick-connect plug, commonly known as 1/4" Industrial Interchange, designed to connect to most air compressors. The other end of the adapter has a female garden hose faucet/spigot/spout connection. If your sprinkler system does not have a garden hose faucet, you can easily remove the garden hose fitting with a wrench to get access to the 1/4" male NPT (national pipe thread) connection, which is a very common type of connection. Your local hardware store should be able to help you find the proper adapter to connect the 1/4" male NPT to your sprinkler system. We use only the finest quality and most durable parts to fabricate these industrial quality, outdoor rated adaptors. All metal parts are made of brass. The water and oil resistant flexible hose is made in USA by Goodyear. We ship from Andover, Kansas, USA.

Sugar Beet Factory
Originally named Hughes, Brighton is in the South Platte valley and benefited greatly in agriculture from the construction of large irrigation systems along the river. The Brighton community had been interested in its own beet sugar factory since at least 1901 and got their first one with the Keyes Syrup Company plant (Keyes was the name of its general manager) which was built in 1906 on donated land. The factory didn't live long and closed a year later. Candy Hamilton's book tells the complete story of the failure which can be summarized by saying that this independent factory was already surrounded by GW growers and had a difficult time competing for farmers to grow beets. Ten years later, Brighton tried again. The Farmers and Merchants of Adams County successfully convinced Great Western to build a Brighton sugar beet factory. It didn't hurt that 1916 was a boom year for Colorado beets, surpassing all previous records with a whopping 2.7 million tons of beets processed vs. 1.7M in 1914 (the Longmont factory was the top producer in the state for 1916, paying out $1,125,000 to farmers). The Larrowe Construction Company of Detroit got the $1,500,000 contract for the factory and machinery, and GW fully billed Brighton as a "showcase for the corporation." Brighton Sugar Factory circa 1918 Being the closest GW factory to Denver, the Brighton factory was designed for visitors and dignitaries in mind, having landscaped lawns and shrubs, a gated entrance, and a modern administration building. President Eisenhower was probably the most famous visitor to the Brighton factory, stopping by on a Tuesday, September 14, 1954. The Brighton factory operated for 60 years until 1977, closing the same year as the Longmont factory. It's record processing day was 2,678 tons on November 30, 1964 (from Hamilton's book). Today, the Brighton factory still stands along north Main Street and is owned by Amalgamated Sugar. Until recently, some of the factory equipment was still up for sale on the company web site and part of the site is still used for warehousing today. Unlike other remaining GW factories, Brighton has its grounds fenced off from a noticeable distance.The Gardner LW engine.
The Gardner LW series of engines was manufactured, almost unmodified, from 1931 until 1974. Many British bus operators "swore by" these virtually indestructible machines. Stories of their longevity and durability are numberless and many LWs, after a design-lifetime of service in buses, were put to further varied employment. Many were exported and used as motive power for everything from Chinese junks to irrigation equipment. Take a peek behind the rides at a fairground and you will find them driving the electrical generators. British forces attempting to scuttle their equipment before the German advance upon Dunkirk drained the sumps of their Gardner-powered trucks and then ran the engines without oil. Unfortunately for the war effort they proved impossible to seize. This is borne out by my own experience. The rather avante-garde Cave-Brown-Cave cooling system fitted to the Bristol Lodekka caused endless trouble almost throughout their working lives. Seize-ups of vehicles fitted with Bristol engines were frequent (and spectacular) ...but you could never seize a Gardner LW. The LW was available in any number of cylinders from one to eight and in the early 1950s a horizontal version ...in effect a normal engine tilted through 90 degrees... was produced for underfloor-engined buses. Here, at the back of the Bristol Omnibus Co. Central Repair Works at Lawrence Hill, we see a rack holding three 5 and one 6-cylinder Gardner HLWs (H for horizontal). A decade after the formation of the National Bus Company and seven years after the imposition of its corporate uniform, badges and insignia, Driver Bentos subversively continues to wear the "scroll" emblem of the Bristol Omnibus Co. above his top pocket. This was not encouraged but, to be fair, I was never told to remove it. The photo was taken on Thursday 25th October 1979.
One end of the adapter has a quick-connect plug designed to connect to most air compressors. The other end can be customized into five Male National Pipe Thread (MNPT) connections (1/4" MNPT, 3/8" MNPT, 1/2" MNPT, 3/4" MNPT, and 1" MNPT) and three Female National Pipe Thread (FNPT) connections (1/2" FNPT, 3/4" FNPT, and 1" FNPT,) to fit most home underground sprinkler systems.
