Disagreement over the safety of electrical outlets
Apr 29, 2016 3:00 AM - Q. Our house was built in the 1950s, before homes had grounded outlets. Last year, we had an electrician install GFCI outlets in our bathrooms for added safety. Our home inspector tested these outlets and found them to be OK, but our buyer disagrees. He says GFCI outlets will not trip unless there is a ground.
