The lead article in this series is titled Bathroom Ideas.
GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt
In short (on pun intended) there is circuitry of some sort in the outlet that measures the input current and the output current.
If there is a very small difference between the two (5 milliamps to be precise), the built in breaker trips and the outlet shuts off.
The fear is the “missing” current is traveling through you, and you are worth shutting off the outlet for.
This is frustrating when you are drying your hair, but GFCI outlets do in fact save lives, which is why the building code requires them.
GFCI outlets are required within five feet of water and everywhere in bathrooms.
When you remodel your bathroom, you are required to ensure every outlet is properly grounded and every outlet is GFCI protected.
Even if you are not remodeling, changing to GFCI (even if the old outlet is not grounded) is a very smart thing to do.
