Installing a GFCI Outlet

Installation Instructions

Installing a GFCI Outlet
A GFCI outlet, which stands for ground fault circuit interrupter, is a receptacle with its own built-in circuit breaker. It is intended to protect you from electric shock and your wiring and breaker panel from being “shorted out”. Building codes require that you have a GFCI outlet in areas near water, for instance in your kitchen, bathroom or garage.
