GFI Switch


Here in Philadelphia we have a lot of older homes. Most of the older bathrooms don't have GFCI outlets. In most cases the switch can be swap out with a switch GFCI combo at minimal expense. It also make a good DIY project. It is not the same or as good as a direct line but it is much better then no outlet. Warning: Some older home have lights with built in outlet. They are not GFCI protected and can be dangerous.

  1. Is the on/off toggle (or whatever it turns on or off) protected by the GFCI or only the outlet?
