Went to hook up a GFCI for a basement installation (new outlet) and noticed that there was no ground conductor connected to the line I was connecting off of. Started popping off outlet covers around the house for outlets, light switches, other GFCI's, and nothing has the green ground screw connected. Not only that, there is only 2 wires (black and white) coming in, so there isn't even a ground wire to connnect.
This house is 2 months old and was bought new construction in Illinois.
1) Should the light switches, outlets, and GFCI be grounded by code?
2) If they shouldn't be, isn't there some kind of verbage that goes on the outlet/switch to indicate it is not grounded? (If there is a link to the instruction, can you provide it ?)
3) Is this worth a visit/chat with the building inspector, or is this a staisfactory install?
