Hey .. we had our home totally remodeled 3 years ago, including all new 
electrical ... sure got rid of a LOT of my RFI problems ... but, almost 
immediately, I had GFI problems when QRO -- made XYL very unhappy.  Did not 
take many "trips" before one of the outlets went out completely.  I called 
the electrical contractor who had installed them, and he knew immediately of 
which I spoke, and replaced the outlets with a different brand ... nary a 
problem since .. .. .. said I was not the first to have problems with the 
model initially used.  Just FYI..  73 ... Mark  AA6DX
