14/3 from panel to 2 GFIs (Canada)
Today I experienced my first electrical inspection for a house I wired all by myself. It went wonderfully! The inspector only had a couple of suggestions but otherwise everything is fine.
One concern, however, involves the kitchen island. One of the narrow ends of it abuts the wall and there I have placed a double-gang box fed with 14/3 from the panel (shared-neutral circuit, double-pole 15A breaker). I intend(ed) to put two GFI receptacles there.
Perhaps the inspector misunderstood me and I didn't have a chance to go back and explain (we had a lot of ground to cover, three floors, two kitchens, etc), but I think he thought I intend to carry the shared neutral past these two receptacles. He said I would need a double-pole GFI breaker and those are pretty costly.
Is it alright to have a two pigtails from the neutral, one feeding each neutral line terminal, and then to have the black go to the hot line terminal on one GFI receptacle and the red to the hot line terminal on the other?
And, say I had to add another receptacle on the end of the island, can I tap 14/2 off of the load terminals of one of these GFI receptacle?
The kitchen island is 4' by 6', sink is currently set to go in the middle but may shift toward the free end of the island.
I am in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
