Does condensate pump need GFCI?

However, whether or not a condensate pump should use one depends on where the system and its outlet are located in your home. It may or may not be best for it to have its own dedicated circuit.

What to Consider With Your Condensate Pump Power

Your condensate pump does not require its own GFCI, and in some situations, you may even want to avoid using one. Is the electrical receptacle for your condensate pump located where it could be damaged by a leak? If so, the GFCI safety sensor would react to dampness and frequently turn off the condensate pump. To prevent this inconvenience, you may be better off using a single-outlet container with no GFCI protection.
