>Got any Sparkies in the house?

Putting in a a new whirlpool bath which calls for 2 220x20 GFCI circuits (one for the pump, one for the heater.

So I run two 10-3wg cables and am going to start hooking things up. Open the unit wiring boxes and the I have a blue and a brown (hot feed) and a green/yellow stripe. Can wire the hot feeds ok, but unsure about the neutral (white).

Do I join the white on the green and just use the bare ground on the box?

Do I use the white to also ground the box?

Do I have one too many wires in this equation?

Do I then take the white or a bare ground to the neutral lug on the breaker?

Feeling a bit dumb here in spring-like New Jersey.

TIA
