I'm not a sparkie but the wiring diagram seems to be pretty clear. I guess it makes sense because they have you feeding a supplied sub-panel and the GFCI's don't come into play until then. I was thinking you could install the subpanel closer to your main panel and using the existing wires run to the spa (just a little jump from the main to the sub and the GFCI's would take over from there) but the diagram seems to say #6 all the way to the control box. I think it is overkill (might be their legal department) but if you ever want to sell the house, it's a "pay me now or pay me later" thing. Time to call a sparkie I think. They are pretty good at fishing wire with minimal damage.The wiring diagram on page 15 (attached in line here) contemplates the run from the main panel to the spa panel as needing to be #6 wire, but then discusses a #10 as a requirement elsewhere (where the 'converted' install isn't performed).
