YES.. I up sell the job and put in (10) receptacles.. if one goes bad.. the others still work so the work does not stop..

I never had a customer complain about having "point of use" GFCI protection when I explain how it works..

You just enjoy being a masshole with your stupid posts.. wise up before you get banned again for being a jerk..

That's silly. But if you can convince people to waste money on that, more power to you.

No, I'm just plain spoken. Some people can handle it, others like yourself can't.

Only in your eyes it's "silly".. I'm out to make money and sell the best job I can for the buck..

You just don't get it.. why is it I don't see anyone else here chiming in how "silly" having "point of use" GFCI protection is..

People are willing to pay for a better job.. but Peter D says that is wrong..

You seem to have selective memory problems because last time you posted about it, plenty of people said it was a waste of time. But hey, you work out of a bunch of buckets in the back of your van, but yet I'm the HD trunkslammer.

Talk about selective memory.. the buckets are so I can have an empty bed for loading up a generator or a Ditchwitch.. ring any bells..

Now go outside and play.. there are adults here trying to have a conversation..

Get a trailer. Better yet, go to your favorite truck rental place and get a van or pickup for a day or two to move the generator. Sure beats working out of buckets.

Are we really getting into a pissing match over GFCI receptacles?

Grow up you two. Jeez. FFS. Act like the professionals you both claim to be.

If you two don't like each other, use the IGNORE feature! It's there for this specific reason.

This is exact setup: GFCI on side of house feeds switch adjacent to it which feeds 1 of 2 remote receptacles,
You might be able to see it with this and the correct meter!
