gfi breaker or faceless gfi
Faceless GFCI or GFCI Breaker? installing an air tub in upstairs bathroom in normal tub space, should i use a gfi breaker or dead front gfi? what would you use if you had a choice? i know a dead front would be convienent if it trips, but if its installed right, it shouldnt really trip that much so a breaker would be good as well. if using dead front where should it be located? not under skirt of course.

The deadfront GFI will be about 1/3 the cost of a GFI breaker.

I'd install a dead front GFCI on a wall nearby. It's cheaper than a GFCI breaker, and more convenient to reset.
