Thread: AWR GFI receptacle

  1. Back To Top    #1

    AWR GFI receptacle

    On my list of fixit items from the inspector left me this one:
    GFI receptacles shall be AWR type and have a bubble cover installed.

    I've taken care of the bubble cover but I'm a little confused what he means by AWR type? The receptacle I have test out correctly when tripped. There is a little green light in the top right corner that is on when its working, when tripped it turns off.

    Any ideas on this? Thanks..

    I'd assume it means the outlet itself needs to be weather resistant

    Re: AWR GFI receptacle

    I think what your inspector is saying,is the cover needs to be an in-use WR(weather resistant)cover with a weather resistant outlet.Unless you have aluminum wiring,lets hope not. ... g_rating|1 ... g_rating|1 ... g_rating|1

    Thanks for the help. I purchased the correct type of GFI outlet and that part passed the inspection. What didn't pass was the type of wires I was using and the fact that the pump and light were not on GFI circuits. Now I have purchased them and replaced what was needed I should be done and approved tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for all the help.
