I know this has been dicussed on this board before, if you can direct me to the thread or give a quick answer it would be appreciated.

What are the requirements on a sump being on a GFCI? Would or could the sump trip the GFCI?


There is no exception for sump pumps in unfinished basements and crawl spaces as far as GFI protection goes. See 210.8(A)(4)&(5)

That said most inspectors are lenient as far as sump pumps are concerned if intent is shown. IE: Single receptacles, etc.

Yes, any motor load can cause a nuisance trip. With most newer motors and GFIs this is less of an issue.

Well said…could not have added anything too Peter’s statement…Most Excellent.
