    An egc is not required to trip a GFCI receptacle. As pointed out by another poster you cannot rely on it tripping or testing properly if there is no egc or if the egc is loose or open, using a three-light tester.

    Uh , so then what was your reason to repeat what I posted ?
    LONG story , short . You do not need a ground for the GFCI to work properly ( and test properly using it's own internal test circuit ) . You do need a ground if you are going to use a handheld GFCI tester . Can we all agree on that ?

    So what is the point of repeating info from a thread twenty days dead ? Is it that important to you to get the last word ?
