I have a Siemens g3030mb1200 power panel. We are adding a bathroom to the basement. There are no other slots available can I add a 20 amp duplex (piggyback) breaker?

Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Siemens makes 2 types OK f tandem breakers. One has a rejection tab and only fits a notched buss position and a tandem without the rejection tab that will fit any buss position. Get the latter one and swap 2 breakers in the panel. The reason is that the new circuit needs to be AFCI protected.
