So that would blow air. How do you inject the sand into that Nozzle?

Very slick. You could even tap the inside of the hose barb or use adapter parts to achieve the effect, but I like the simplicity here. I'd drop it in a hole drilled in a 2x8 I keep around for such things and bop it with a ball-peen hammer to seat it. But I'm a neanderthal like that.
