I recently bought a foreclosure in Columbia, MD and it was wired with AL wiring (built in 1974). I have already replaced most plugs and switches in the house with AL/CU rated ones, as the previous were all CU only. I have run into a bit of a problem though, and thats for the GFCI’s. I am going to need one in each bathroom and then 1 in the kitchen, only problem is I cannot find a GFCI that is AL rated. Do they make them?
If not what is the best way to proceed? Use the purple ideals to pigtail copper and use a normal GFCI. Or use a GFCI breaker for the kitchen circuit and the bathroom circuit?
I also found that both bathrooms are on the same circuit which is only on a 15 amp breaker. There is also some plugs in the bedroom that are on that same circuit. That is not code these days correct? Should this be something that needs to be addressed immediately?
