Cool Spa Wiring Help

Need to run wire for a new spa. My house panel in the garage has no more room for the 50amp breaker. Can I install a subpanel next to the Main on the side of the house and then run 6/4 underground 75' to the spa panel? I would have an electrician complete the tie in.

Sure, you can always add a subpanel.

I just wasn't sure if I could tie into the main panel where the meter is.

But you cannot run 6/4 underground in conduit. I assume you are referring to a cable such as NM or UF.
For a spa you need to run in conduit when outside the house and you must run separate conductors with and insulated ground.
