Neal Lewis Posted April 18, 2010 Report Share Posted April 18, 2010 Recently I've inspected three houses with knob & tube wiring where brand new GFCI outlets were installed for the ungrounded outlets on a K & T circuit. These were in rooms that typically don't need a GFCI outlet (bedroom, dining rm, etc). I believe the outlets were installed by an electrician. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't know what the reasoning is behind installing the GFCI outlet with the K & T. Maybe someone thought the occupant would be a little safer, but it obviously doesn't make the wiring any safer. Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
