Wadsworth Upgrade?


I have an older home built in the early 60s with a wadsworth 100 amp service. Its a 3 bedroom 1 bath home. Has a heatpump on a 50 amp 2 pole breaker, range on a 50amp 2 pole, drier on a 30amp2 pole plus the water heater and lighting,refrig and microwave. Just got married and wife has an outdoor spa we are moving to my home. I know I need a new service, but funds are low. I have room for another 50amp 2 pole breaker in the wadsworth box. Any Ideas if the spa will be too much load for this? Here are the spa specs
Model 52 44 32 22 Dry Weight 550 lbs 550 lbs 550 lbs 550 lbs Filled Weight 3250 lbs 3250 lbs 3250 lbs 3250 lbs Water Capacity 325 gl 325 gl 325 gl 325 gl Pump 1 6 hp 2 sp 4.8 hp 2 sp 6 hp 2 sp 4.8 sp 2 sp Pump 2 6 hp 1 sp 4.8 hp 1 sp Or (2) 3 hp. 1 sp** - Pump 3 3 hp 1 sp* - - - Heater 5.5 K flo-thru 5.5 K flo-thru 5.5 K flo-thru 5.5 K flo-thru Light Yes Yes Yes Yes Full Foam Yes Yes Yes Yes Typhoon Roto 4.5" 12 12 8 7 Typhoon Roto 4" 10 10 8 4 Typhoon Direct 4" 4 4 - - Cluster 2.75" 10 10 8 8 MiniMulti Massage 3" 10 4 4 2 Mini Direct 3" 4 2 2 - Whirlpool 5" 1 1 1 - Ozone/Drain Jet 1 1 1 1 Filter Size 50 sq ft 50 sq ft 50 sq ft

Kenny, you know already you need a service upgrade. It won't be to much for the service if you use a little common sense. No turkey roasting or clothes washing while frisky newlyweds enjoy the tub.
