Question by Electrical Novice: Should I install multiple GCFI outlets on the same circuit?
I have a number of electrical outlets on the same circuit in the same room, e.g. the bathroom and kitchen. Each is near water (either the shower or a faucet). Should I install a single GCFI output per room, or replace each outlet with a GCFI?
Answer by glen t
it depends on where the circuit runs. if the only outlets are in the bath and kitchen you can just install one and let it protect the rest of the outlets. if there are other outlets outside of and downstream from the bath then you should install seperate GFI and wire each as a stand a lone unit. either way is legal and workable but of course installing just one or two is cheaper and easier.
