Can you have 2 GFCI outlets on the same circuit?

GFCI receptacles have two sets of contacts, line , and load . There is no need to have a GFCI receptacle as the second receptacle, since it will already be protected by the first GFCI receptacle. Because of this, if the first device trips all devices on the load side will not be powered (as you have noticed).

Beside this, can you connect 2 GFCI on same circuit?

Note that you can't connect any other GFCI devices via the "load" terminals of a GFCI receptacle. However, anything connected to the "load" terminals will be protected, and the extra "Protected by GFCI" labels that came with the GFCI device should be applied to all of the downstream receptacles.

how many outlets can be on GFCI? Re: number of outlets after gfci Using 220.14, a maximum of 13 receptacle outlets are allowed on a 20A circuit. They can be single or dulpex and still only counts as one receptacle.

Subsequently, one may also ask, can you daisy chain GFCI outlets?

Daisy chaining GFCI devices can be problematic, even if they appear to be wired correctly. The downstream GFCI (receptacle) may perform an internal self-test when energized, which the upstream GFCI (breaker) detects as a fault. You can daisy-chain GFCIs if you really want to. They will still protect just fine.

Do GFCI outlets need to be on their own circuit?

No GFCI's do not require a dedicated circuit. However, they are normally in circuits that are required to have ground fault protection. The way I wire them, is to have the GFCI as the first plug, then chain and protect all the plugs downstream from the GFCI.
