Copper Countertop Electrical Outlet

mcleroyOctober 17, 2008

Am installing copper countertop on island that is 48" x 96" with electrical outlets on either side.

Do I have to ground it some way? How to do?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The outlets will have their own ground, and anything plugged into them will be grounded (if it has a 3 prong plug).

The outlets will also have a GFCI that will detect any current leakage.

The general rule is that metal 'likely to become electrified' needs grounding.

A counter is NOT in this class.
