No, romex with a red and black will also have a neutral with the ground… but you can get black, white and ground romex… electricity doesn’t care what color the insulation is, and you can put red tape, or mark the exposed white wire with red marker…True, a 240 pump doesn't need the neutral. In my case I wanted 120VAC in the shed. But a question, do they make romex with a red, black and ground only? I don't recall seeing that but it may well exist. I'll look next time I am in the local hardware store and see if they carry such a thing.
