But only if the secondary suppressors are single mode (fault current path to
neutral), rather than devices that offer the popular "all three modes" of
protection. If secondary protection is desired after installing a
whole-house protector, it should only be single mode (e.g., SurgeX,
Brickwall, ZeroSurge). Except for the whole-house surge protector, "three
modes of protection" devices have no place in a home.
