As far as I know, a GFI ckt is not required for any type of water heater under a sink, correct?

Wait a minute...Under the 2002 I agree with Roger 100%. Under the 2005, however, it would be required, unless the sink is located in a kitchen, as per 210.8(A)(8).

Ryan, did you mean 210.8(A)(7) of 2005?
And yes, I was using 2002 in my reply [Linked Image]

Ryan, why would GFCI protection be required? 210.8 only applies to 15 and 20 amp 125 volt receptacles.

Hello Curt, I was assuming a cord and plug connected unit and think Ryan was as well.

At last! I found it!

Last 12/28/04, I posted a pic of this in the "Photos for Discussion" forum. The last comment was on 1/10/05.

Look for thread titled "GFCI- needed here?"
