I have 6 standard receptacles throughout my house that all wire into a single GFCI directly below my breaker box. This is inconvenient, because if I trip one of them somewhere, the other 5 don't work and I need to reset down at the electrical panel at the single GFCI. I would like to "un-do" this setup and convert the 6 individual standard receptacles to GFCI each. Below is a crude diagram of my setup. For clarity, there is a circuit on the panel for the GFCI box below the panel itself.
I would like confirmation that this is how to achieve this:
- Remove all 6 of the wires coming out of the LOAD from the GFCI in the basement and pigtail them over to the LINE so that all have constant power in addition to the GFCI in the basement itself.
- For each of the 6 standard receptacles, replace it with a GFCI receptacle
Potential additional concerns: doing what I want to do might be weird because that means there are 6 different receptacles around the house all on the same circuit (like they were before through the GFCI) as opposed to by location, e.g. "half bath" circuit, etc. Longer term I assume it would be better to have an electrician move each wire to another relevant circuit, e.g. half bath, exterior, full bath 1, etc. Let me know if you agree or if this really isn't an issue.
