Answer: 
NO! The total current draw of more than one heater is more than the 20 amp breaker and the breaker will still trip. No way to run more than one heater of that size without running more or larger wiring and breakers.

Can this be used as an ON/OFF switch

I like the idea of adding a GFIC to my heater circuit, but I would like to shut the power off when I'm away from home. My heater has no on/off switch and I hate to constantly having to unplug it from the wall.
Is it possible to hit one of the button to turn it off and then reset it when I return home?

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works with aquarium -- sort of I got one of these units to protect the electrical environment of an aquarium. Imagine my surprise when I turned on the fluorescent lamp above the aquarium and the GFCI tripped! I tried this a few times, with the same result each time. Apparently, something about turning on the light looks like a ground fault to the adapter. If I reset the adapter with the light already switched on, it didn't trip, but I can't be doing that every time I turn the aquarium light on. I ended up plugging the aquarium light directly into the wall, and using the GFCI adapter to protect the other things (filter, air pump, thermostat). So it's still useful -- it just can't be used to protect the aquarium light. Yes, I realize this could really be a complaint about the aquarium light instead of about the GFCI adapter....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well for what I needed. I assumed from image the product was going to be flimsy. It turns out to be rather hard shell, and heavier than I had anticipated; if I shake it, it does not feel like anything inside is loose. I would imagine it would take a number of drops before any concern for the functionality. The device gets warm, even after light use, but I expected that due to the way it is enclosed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Item works great and is cheap We ordered these to replace our extension cords with the GFCI. The cords are about 5 times more expensive than these with a standard extension cord November 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not used yet. Like a fire extinguisher, You hope it works when needed. August 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent way to protect yourself! I have 2 outdoor outlets that are not GFCI protected. This is a great & easy way to protect myself while using these outlets when I am using an electric hedge trimmer or other corded device outside. Try to find a device like this in a retail store (including Home Depot) & the employees will tell you that such a thing doesn't exist! I've been searching for an item like this for years. The price & convenience are wonderful -You don't have to redo all your outlets - you just plug this baby into the outlet you are using and you are ready to go with no worries. I wonder why this item is not more readily available. November 12, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GFCI Adapter The GFCI on my pressure washer went bad. This is a great replacement! September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good safety this is a great add on for strip outlet or extension cords being used outdoors or in a garage. great price. June 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertized This product works well. I bought it for my Aquarium so I wouldn't kill myself with all the electricity and water close together. The only issue I have is when the power is disconnected, either by turning everything off or a power outage the unit has to be manually reset. This could be an issue for me, if their is a power blip the system will stay off until until I can reset the unit. September 25, 2012
