TOPIC: GFCI in non grounded house

Re: GFCI in non grounded house 10 years 4 months ago #48392

Thanks for the compliment Michael...I see your out in the OC.  Love it out there...was trying to plan a motorcycle run there this summer...but they may not happen.  But hopefully will just have to do it without the bike.

The GFCI will work as intended. All such installations should be labeled "No Equipment Ground" on each receptacle that applies.

As a  note, One recognized solution to installing  3 prong outlets to replace 2 prong ones in houses with no ground wire, is to install a GFCI outlet at the beginning of the branch circuit (first outlet from the panel)wired correctly with line and loads. All down stream outlets must be labeled non grounded GFI protected. These labels come with the GFIC in its box. All down stream outlets are protected and the gfic will still work as a ground is not required for it to function properly.
