make sure you have PVC conduit (it is n9t rated the same as pipe for DWV and that it is marked as UV resistant.

Question...isn't an insulated ground is required for spas and pools. Is that all the way back to the service panel?

To the OP, you probably don't need a #6 ground. #10 should be sufficient for a 50 amp circuit. Saves a little money.
