Question

fridge power outlet next to water valve - GFCI or not ?


i will have one of those fridges that have water supply for drinking water filtration and ice and the valve for that will be real close to the power outlet. my question is, does the outlet then need to be GFCI considering that it is that close but still it will never be wet because of the hose connecting it is sealed closed ?
