I've pulled a new 12 gauge/20 amp circuit to an old bathroom that is
currently using 14 gauge with no ground wire. I need to add a fan and
Is this correct:
I can use this one 20 amp circuit for everything inside this one
bathroom (one outlet, 2 lights, one fan) as long as nothing else is on
The outlet near the sink must be GFCI of course. I will run the feed
from the breaker to this outlet, and then I can make the other
fixtures (lights, fan) downstream from this one GFCI outlet. This
makes everything in the bathroom GFCI.
Cripe, I'm correcting my own post.
OK, I got a 20 amp circuit going to the bathroom and noplace else.
I think I can split off this to (a) a branch to the GFCI outlet by the
sink and (b) a branch for the fan and lights.
This means NOT put the lighting downstream from the GFCI outlet. No
sense in being in the dark if you blow the GFCI.
