20A GFCI on 15A circuit


Probably never have even mentioned it anyhow, just going to add confusion since most DIY's dont understand the difference between a single receptacle and a duplex receptacle. Sorry for the game delay, play on!

Ah, but now we do, so it was all worth it..

(BTW - I've been receptacle device shopping often enough that I knew the diff, I just didn't realize the NEC was so picky. And does this mean I have to call them "receptacle device" in all my postings from now on when I mean the unit, regardless of single, duplex or triplex??? )

Holy crap. Sorry Chris.
I totally spaced on the fact that you are talking about a single receptacle. I was concentrating on the fact that the OP has a GFI, which is why I concentrated on tables (B)(2) and (3).

Sorry about that bud.

No biggie, its a DIY site, I know I think a little differently when reading some of the posts.

If you really wanna learn some quick stuff, read thru the Art. 100 Definitions, it will help greatly. Its exactly why some things can be so confusing sometimes.
