Hi,
If I have 4 bath rooms in a single dwelling dont they all have to have their own 20A circuit?

You can not feed the lights or fans or any other room from this circuit either right?

thanks for any replies..

-regards

You have a choice: 1) A single 20 amp circuit for all four (or more) receptacles in the four bathrooms, and the lights, fans, etc wired from a separate lighting circuit, which may include other rooms. 2) Four 20 amp circuits, one dedicated for each bathroom, including the lights, fan and maybe even a heater, too, if there is sufficient capacity. 3) A separate 20 amp circuit for each receptacle in each bathroom, with the lights and fan on any lighting circuit. 4) Two receptacles from two bathrooms on a single 20 amp circuit, 5) combinations of 3 and 4.
220.14(J) makes it clear these outlets are included in the residential general lighting load, and therefore are unlimited in the number allowed per circuit.

I find it best to run the Home Run to the GFI receptacle, & feed the lights, fans etc off the load side.
That way everything in the Bathroom is GFI protected !

And when the GFI trips from all the moisture you can slip and fall in the dark.
