Which GFI

Hi,

Have a house built around 1965 in which there is on 15 amp circuit for the both baths (lights and outlets) master bedroom and kitchen ceiling light.

I would like to add one 20 amp circuit (12ga) for both bath outlets only.

A single GFI in each, my question is do I use a 15 amp or 20 amp GFI?

Thanks

Don't waste your money on 20 amp GFCI receptacles. Use a 15 amp GFCI receptacles.

Reason: Do you own anything you want to use in the bathroom that has a 20 amp plug on it? Do you know of anything you want to use in the bathroom that has a 20 amp plug on it?

Thanks for the reply

After I bought the 20's I had second thoughts about being able to use the 15's.

If you already have the 20s, you can use them.
