hot tub subpanel

I am installing an outside GFCI subpanel for a 220v Hotsprings hottub. The panel will be installed on an outside wall of my carport and must be within sight of my hottub. The best place is about 4 feet from an outside spigot. What is the minimum distance from the new subpanel to the spigot?

I am running three #8 wires (2-load,1 neutral) and one #10 (grnd) from my main panel to the subpanel. They will go from a utility room into the attic and then to an outside wall where the panel will be installed. I will be putting the wire in conduit on the outside wall. Does this wire need to be individual wires or can it be romex wire? I am in north Florida.

thanks, Nick

the distance from the hose bib to the sub panel should not be a problem, theres no reason to use romex inside of conduit , use thhn , however check your load requirements before running the # 8 if your spa calls for 50 amps you will need to use # 6 up to 100 ft.
