I have a half-bath on the main floor of our house that is small and has only 3 electrical items in it:
- Light above the sink (and corresponding light switch)
- Fart fan (and corresponding light switch)
- Two non-GFCI receptacles (one box, two plug-ins) next to the sink
I understand that, by itself, this is against code and that those receptacles must be GFCI-protected. However, my house is new enough (~1995?) that I'm sure this has to be up to code but I don't know what GFCI switch actually controls this.
- I understand a device like this will prove that it is or is not protected. But how?
- If it is protected, is there an easy way to find the device that protects it? (our circuit breaker box's labels are worse than useless b/c of how wrong the labels are)
- If I find it's not protected, then I'm definitely going to replace it to protect it. Is it correct that I should replace it with a 15A box unless both my wiring and circuit breaker are proper for 20A? (Current receptacles are 15A judging by not having the horizontal "right-angle" hole.)
