My house was built in 1981, we have a small U shaped kitchen with 5 outlets, along with a switch for the garbage disposal.
I do not see any GFCI outlets or any indication any of them are. With a 4 month old now in the house, I am thinking it is a good idea to look at the electrical.
My question is if the outlets are all on the same line (they all go off with one switch in the breaker), can I install one GFCI outlet and it would protect al of them, or do I need to replace all 5?
I am fine either way, just do not want to spend the time and money if it doesn't serve a purpose. Is there a way to identify if they are in series or parallel? And if so would that impact if I need to replace them all or one?
I have read some basics on GFCI but get some conflicting reports on if one will protect them all.
