HydroFlo Announces Adding Dr. Neal Hill as Chief Executive Officer

RALEIGH, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 7, 2006 -- HydroFlo, Inc. (OTC: HYRF) -- In response to recent and rapid company-wide growth, including the spin-off of MARTI into a separate publicly traded stock, HydroFlo founder, Dennis L. Mast, felt it was the right time for a change at the helm of HydroFlo.

HydroFlo is built upon a group of patented technologies. As stated by Mast: "HydroFlo Water Treatment has 2 patents, MARTI has 3, and more that are still pending. Safety Scan has about 7, and we have exclusive licensed water-related technologies with University of Wyoming and Los Alamos National Laboratories that are in use across the portfolio companies as well. This move, placing Dr. Hill at the helm, lets me go forward with what I have been so happy and good at doing in the past. That is, to find those patent-protected processes that have the potential to change the world. At the risk of sounding trite, this is my life's mission."

Dr. Neal Hill is a well-seasoned executive: as CEO of six companies from 1978-present, Dr. Hill brings more than 28 years of in-depth experience in finance and the life sciences. Dr. Hill has worked both in growing enterprises as well as in publicly traded companies involved in novel environmental technologies similar to HydroFlo and its portfolio companies. His prior record includes guiding both turn-around and startup organizations through merger or acquisition events. Mast states, "This means he brings extensive experience in good investor relations, as well as in sizing up and creating strategic alliances. He's the right man at the right time."
