Mainly it is needed to be understood by most that not all recepts in the kitchen need to be GFCI...nor do the dedicated plugs for things like garbage disp, diswashers and trash compactors as well....and of course our good friend the fridge.
I can't be sure but heck I might have posted a history of the GFCI....but anyway they just seem to add to it but always had people ask me if it has to do with so many feet from a water as the main reason for GFCI( well it can in some cases...pools and spas and now wet bars and launtry sinks and well I digress )...well water plays a big part in all things...lol..as we HI's know....but the requirements for GFCI are specific in that the NEC tells us what has to be on GFCI....now what all we CAN put on GFCI if we want to...![icon_smile.gif](upload://b6iczyK1ETUUqRUc4PAkX83GF2O.gif)
Heck someone one could put all the 15-20A branch circuits on them ( excluding those now protected by AFCI anyway...lol ) and be fine....BUT that is the guy I want to bid against when trying to get the next electrical job..thehehhe
