I do not mean to be a pest.
I have looked through the NEC and can’t find one reference to what several LARGE contractors, all building large residential projects by the way, have said to me verbatim about GFCI outlets and placement.
The GC: Only one GFCI outlet is required as long as one is present in the branch circuit.
I am in disbelief this happened again and again.
They could not understand basic compliance I pointed out in the report.
A kitchen basin with 2 outlets on each side.
Both outlets fell within the required distance.
I tell them they are mistaken but do not be offended.
That code can be hard to interpret. especially when its all English and interpretation into the French language is at times IMPASSABLE/IMPOSSIBLE!
AM I WRONG?
I tried to trip the “unidentified” ha ha ha circuit in front of one of one GC.
You can guess what happened.
I will look into it but I understand… yada, yada yada.
My interpretation is that the outlet/s
1: It must be identifiable.
2: It must function.
3: GFCI’s are placed within the NEC’s designated/required assigned areas of the home, the garage and outdoors.
Could any one show me if I am wrong.
But I can not get my head around no identification.
