Wiring GFCI Outlets
How Many Outlets can be wired to One GFCI
The limitation of the number of outlets that may be wired to or protected by one GFCI outlet will depend on the actual circuit and where it is located and what it will be used for. The actual connected load for the circuit and all of the outlets is a factor as well due to the circuit amperage limitations as well as the GFCI limitations.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
