I did not mean to start a debate about this gfci thing. The answer to my question was answered in one of the first 3 or 4 replys,but do not get me wrong i appreciate all efforts that went into replys. Now onto what i saw a few days ago. In the house i was invited to i noticed every single outlet throughout had gfci outlets..? Why? I asked the owners out of curiosity and they told me because the way the house was originally wired. All outlets boxes had only two wires running into them,so in turn they did not have a way to protect other outlets down a circuit. Interesting. Thought i'd share that bit of info. with this forum. Happy weekend to all.
