I gave a galley kitchen and a couple of outlets on the side opposite of the sink, so about 5-6 ft away from water. Do they need to be GFCI or just regular because they are at a distance? What is the usual distance limit within which GFCI is required?


If the outlets serve a countertop then they need to be GFCI protected. The 6' distance you refer to is for sinks not installed in kitchens.
