gfci outlets

I would like to know if you can use more than one gfci on one circuit breaker and if so then how do you run the wiring after the first one?

The wiring from the circuit breaker terminates in the line side terminals of the GFCI. Connect any downstream receptacles to the load side terminals. You can use standard duplex receptacles for the downstream devices, but the manufacturers recommend connecting no more than three downstream receptacles to the GFCI.

You can connect as many GFCI type recepticles as you want by connecting the ins and outs of the recepticles to the line side only. The load side of the GFCI recepts are for connecting non-GFCI receps that you wnat to be GFCI protected anyway.

In many situations, there's no advantage to connecting more than one GFCI on a circuit. What are you trying to accomplish with multiple GFCIs on one circuit? Tell us more about your thinking, and your situation.
