    The jobs are electrical service upgrades. I have to write a correction to provide GFCI protection for the swimming pool pumps. It happens every time. If a solar company did the service upgrade they install AFCI because they are not electricians.

    You are going to have to start spelling out Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. AFCI is the same as GFCI to those guys.

    Suggest they use dual AFCI/GFCI for everything to pass.
