25 | Owner | Sweet Southern Pools

Dan Rice, 25

At age 14, Dan Rice began his career at Bluewater Pools. Now the owner of Sweet Southern Pools, he worked his way up at Bluewater from the retail store to becoming a skilled maintenance and repair technician. This experience laid the foundation for his expertise in pool maintenance and repair.

In 2018, Rice began part-time work at Atlantic Pools. He managed maintenance routes for both residential and commercial clients and contributed to new pool construction projects.

In August 2019, Rice and his wife founded Sweet Southern Pools. Today, he manages a team of technicians and takes charge of estimates and major projects. The company offers a range of services, including residential and commercial maintenance, repairs, liner installations, remodels and, as of this year, new pool builds.

Rice makes sure pool owners receive trustworthy and high-quality service. He recognizes the unfortunate reality of unscrupulous operators in the industry who take advantage of clients, and he’s determined to make a difference.

“By owning and operating my own pool company, I get to ensure all of my clients’ pools are perfectly balanced and taken care of the correct way,” he says. “I get to make their backyard dreams come true. Our clients put a lot of trust in us, and we do not take that for granted.”

Rice dreams of growing the Sweet Southern Pools team to help more people in need. 

“There is more work out there than we can take on, and I would love to be able to offer our services to anyone who wants them,” he says.

Eventually, Rice hopes to see the business handed down to one of his children. “We are in it for the long haul,” he says. “Maybe one of our kids will grow up to be as passionate as I am about our business and its mission and decide to continue the legacy of Sweet Southern Pools.”
