I was wondering, I just installed a new water heater due to the fact that the old one sprung a leak. Got the same size heater with the difference of both inlet and outlet are now on top instead of the old one having the hot on top and cold on bottom side of the tank. I mad new copper lines and installed the heater and noticed it had a green wire coming out of the heat along with the red and black and the old one only had the red and black wires. They are both 240v heaters. Now my question is do I leave the green wire grounded to the tank itself or do i connect it to another wire? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
