if your talking about a garage air compressor there is no adapter, (or more accurately even if there is one it wouldn't work) a garage compressor puts out around 150-200 psi at most, a HPA tank needs 3,000-4,500 psi. not only that but the garage compressor uses wet dirty air, something you do not want going through your marker. If you are looking to have a fill at home you can get a Scuba tank and a fill station for it. fill the scuba tank at your local dive shop and then you can fill off of it when you are at home
