Subject: GFI installation

Name: Charles

Question: If I install a GFI outlet in my older home with a 2-wire system, will it still perform its safety function?

Answer: Hi Charles,

Yes the GFCI will work on a two wire system. The code actually want electricians to replace two prong outlet with GFCI outlet. I world really prefer you to start replacing the old wiring. The GFCI is only a band aid on a bigger problem.
