How do you wire this breaker w/GFI

This question is from Homeline 40 Amp 2-Pole GFCI Circuit Breaker

Both poles plug into the Square D buss = ok

There are 2 screws for the 2 hot lines on front of breaker = ok.

This breaker has an extra wire coming out of the bottom of one of the 2 poles. How do you wire it? Is it a ground wire?

How do you wire the ground (3rd wire in 240 volt #6 wire combo/green wire) coming from the under sink water heater? Do you connect it to the wire coming out of the left side of the circuit breaker i.e. the ground wire coming from the water heater?

Are there any other grounding issues/considerations?

Is this ground setup any more sensitive than just connecting the ground wire from the under sink water heater to all the other grounding wires in the electrical box with a non-gfi breaker?

Answer: 
First, if customers are not sure how to install any breakers, they should contact a licensed electrician. GFI breakers have a pigtail. If you have a single pole breaker you have one hot and one neutral screw. For the 2 pole GFI breaker you have 2 hots and 1 neutral screw. These are clearly marked on the breaker label. The neutral connection on a regular breaker goes directly to the panel neutral. On GFI Read More

My box is outside. Will this work for a spa hookup? If the spa is the only thing on this breaker, will it keep tripping since these are sensitive?
