Adding 1/2 bath-dedicated 20amp circuit?
I've been thinking about installing a half bath (I think that's what it is--toilet and sink) in the basement.
Problem is that I have no nice way to run a dedicated 20 amp circuit to the laundry room (where the bathroom will be). (by nice I mean, ripping open drywall, etc.) Also seems a waste of an entire breaker for one outlet, but that's just me.
However, I do have a dedicated 15 amp circuit for the receptacles and lights and a 20 amp circuit dedicated for the washing machine and gas dryer.
Don't suppose I can tap into the 20-amp circuit for the washing machine?
I think I saw reference that a bathroom has to have a dedicated 20-amp circuit (the lighting would already be on the 15-amp circuit. Just need to add a convenience outlet or whatever by the sink).
