Default Re: Water fountain on GFCI???

As of the 2008 NEC code cycle a GFCI circuit is required.


GFCI protection for electric drinking fountains was added.

Electric drinking fountains shall be connected to a GFCI-protected outlet. Author's comment: This new requirement was brought about without documentation of an electrical accident or incident.

As a Professional Home Inspector, I support the privacy of my clients.
