There are GFI outlets and there are GFI breakers.
I happen not to like the way GFi outlets look and GFI breakers are
sometimes just too far away (4 flights of stairs). Is there an in-
between solution to GFI protect the circuit?
As has been stated, GFI outlets can protect downstream loads. Another
reason besides distance to the outlet is the likelihood of accidentally
hitting the test button and unnecessarily interrupting service downstream.
