The ground fault plug only protects the hot wire from shorting out to any ground, & I am not sure if that includes shorting out to the neutral wire of said ground fault unit. The device triggers to off if the current flowing between hot & neutral is not the same. Oh ya the ground faults tend to break alot to (does not like some motors either). One ground fault plug can be wired up to regular plugs to give the same protection only you need to know which ground fault powers which plugs incase you have trouble down the line. The test switch on the ground fault plug can help you find regular plugs wired to it & checks to see if the ground fault is still working. Also there are plug testers you can buy @ hardware stores with three lights checks for correct wiring of a plug, also better models has a button that trigger good ground faults to off if working right. Hope you have better computing.
