Regarding GFCI outlets in bathrooms and kitchens. Is one required in every outlet on vanity near sinks? or is it the first in the feed, or is it every one within 4 feet of sink?
My understanding from working along side the electrical inspector is that all outlets within a given distance of a water source must be GFCI protected. That said, you can wire one in first and all the normal outlets "downstream" will trip that first one. I suspect there maybe be more requirements as to how many, and how that is done, but I've seen those approved over an over as long as they were properly wired. I suspect others here are more directly familiar with the NEC.
Every one. If in series and properly wired, the first one being a GFCI receptacle, and its daughters so labeled, will suffice. Alternative: put necessary receptacles on a GFCI breaker in the panel box.
I suggest that you you contact your LJHA for their input on your question and to find out if they have any requirements you will have to comply with. I also suggest that you give the NFPA a call with your question. They wrote the Electrical Code and will be the best source to get an definitive answer to your question. NFPA 70 Section 210.8 will also give guidance on your question. When I was doing Fire Inspections I always use 6'as the minimum distance between a water source and a recepticale to require a gfi. Just my opinion. Hope this is helpful.
