Answer: 
This product (10/2 UF-B Cable) is rated for 20 Amps. If the water heater draws 20 Amps or less and the breaker is sized 20 Amps or less, yes you can use this cable. The voltage drop over 50' will be less than 3% which is normally acceptable. You can check the voltage drop using the voltage drop calculator available at: http://www.southwire.com/support/voltage-drop-calculator.htm. The above advice is Read More

Answer: 
It depends. This is the correct product to run underground and it is rated for 30 Amps. If your total need is 30 Amps or less (and it is connected to a 30 Amp breaker), you will have enough current. The other issue is voltage drop. For a 150' run at 120 V and 30A, a 10 AWG conductor will have a voltage drop of about 8% or 9.5V, leaving you with about 110V. That might be too low to run some devices well Read More

That might be too low to run some devices well (especially things with motors, like an air compressor). The industry standard is to keep your voltage drop less than 3%. For a voltage drop below 3%, you would need a 4 AWG conductor. The largest size you can get for UF cable is 6 AWG which gives you a voltage drop of 3.3%. That's pretty close.
