Hello... Installing an electric hot water heater... 220... I speak 110 pretty well, but 220...aaa not so much.

Heater has only to hot lines coming out and i am curious if i need a neutral at all? Client says yes just run it to the heater and attach to ground.

not true...client did most of the work and asked me to finish... want it right before inspection...thanks for being such an ass
Ilkewires,
You are construction related but not specifically an electrician. You have asked a specific question, but there is a good chance that the owner has done other things wrong that you have missed.
An electrician would tell you that connecting a true neutral (grounded) wire from the panel to a ground terminal at the heater is totally wrong, against code, and unsafe.
What else may be wrong that the inspector will find, or worse, that the inspector will not find?
