I have a question for you sparkies.
I inspected a lake house with a dock last Friday. The GFI breaker for the dock circuits was wired in series with another house circuit that powered receptacles in a wet bar area and a dishwasher.
The grounded conductor ( white wire) from the dock circuit was connected to the black conductor of the wet bar/dishwasher circuit whose grounded conductor then was connected to the GFI breaker.
The GFI breaker did not function properly with a tester on either circuit, but did trip when its' built in test button was depressed.
I called out for evaluation as the GFI breaker did not function. My question is if the GFI breaker HAD functioned, is this something ( the series wiring ) that is appropriate?
The picture below does mot clearly show what is there but FYI:
Thanks for the help.
