Hot Water Heater

I am thinking about moving my elec hot water heater. It is on a interuptable service with a 30Amp 220V breaker. What gauge of wire should I be using? It is either two 1200W or two 1500W elements I can't remember right now. I am looking at about 40ft away from the breaker.

10/2 is the nearly universal cable for residential tank water heaters in North America.

Thanks for the quick response. That is what I was thinking.
