Any bathroom or garage within 6" within a sink must be GFCI protected. The code also requires all kitchen outlets for countertop use to be GFCI protected. GFCI must be installed in any area were electricity and water may come into contact. Including basements, pools, spars utility rooms, attached garages and outdoors. At least one GFCI is required in a unfinished basement and for most outdoor outlets. They are two type GFCI in homes. The GFCI outlet and the GFCI breaker. Both do the same job, but each has different specifications and limitations.
