Hello all! My name is Ben Rushing and am the owner of Southlake Pools. I started this company at the end of 2007, beginning of 2008. My genius idea was to start this company so that I could spend more time with my family. At the time, my wife Amanda, and I had 3 year old girl and a newborn girl. Man, did I learn some lessons! As I dove into the startup aspect of a small business and learning the ins/ outs of the pool industry, Amanda was doing the same at home with our little ones. We both found ourselves dealing with more than we could handle. Then, the following year we had a son… Drumroll please…yes, a few years later we had another girl!
Four kiddos and a small business in its infancy-
As you can also guess, there were many, many more lessons to be learned as business owners and as parents. As of the time of my update to the about us, we have one in high school, one in middle school and two in elementary school. On the business side of the family, we have grown to a great group of pool cleaners, a wonderful service department and an amazing group in the office.
We started just cleaning pools but over the years have learned how to pretty much take care of all needs associated with swimming pools- Filter cleaning, acid washes, pump repair and replacement, automation repairs and upgrades, leak detection and repairs, complete pool remodels or just minor repairs. We also just built our first pool for my family to enjoy. Who knows, maybe that’s the next step for our future as an offering for our customers!
At the moment we service Southlake, Keller, Grapevine, Colleyville, Trophy Club, Westlake, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, North Richland Hills and surrounding areas.
Thanks for learing about me and the business!
