Another thought older home with out GFCI's do just fine without them.
I pulled the gfi at my house, but I dont dare do it on a clients home.

We have cut our gfi calls significantly this year, instead of the usual dozen or so calls, we have it down to 3 or 4 and of those 2 have had the issues found and corrected.

We split the load, even with LED's, to lessen the chance of tripping in the rain and also have come up with a few tricks that seem to have worked extremely well!!!
