As you may recall, I recently had a question about replacing an old unprotected kitchen outlet with a GFCI. There happens to be a light switch "downstream" from the outlet.
As I learned from Tom O (on this forum), code requires that lighting not be on GFCI. So I've had to run separate "line" and "load" from the GFCI box ("line" for the light switch (in another box), "load" for downstream receptacles). (A downstream receptacle is in a double box with the light switch.)
This has turned into a bit more work than I'd hoped (like most home projects!), but I definitely want the safety of GFCI and the best possible installation. Are there any other requirements or things I should know? Like, can all (line and load) downstream ground wires be treated equally (attached together)? Is there anything a future electrician would like to see when they open this up years down the road (to help tell line from load, etc)?
Thanks again for your help!
