APEX, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- As part of an ongoing effort to keep its shareholders updated on company related issues, HydroFlo, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYRF) is posting an end-of-month newsletter at its website ( The following information was included in the April 2007 newsletter from the company's CEO.

Letter from HydroFlo Inc.'s Chief Executive Officer, George Moore - April 30, 2007

HydroFlo, Inc.:

HydroFlo, Inc. has recently become aware of an effort by an unrelated company, that it believes is affiliated with a past officer and director of HydroFlo, to induce a number of large HydroFlo shareholders to swap HydroFlo stock for shares of the unrelated company, using an undisclosed ratio. HydroFlo is not a party to these transactions nor has it had any prior knowledge of this or any related efforts by this company to induce a stock swap involving HydroFlo securities.

HydroFlo strongly advises that prior to entering into any arrangement with any third party related to HydroFlo shares, any such shareholder should consult with their own legal counsel as well as a registered representative who is licensed to advise individuals on matters related to securities.

HydroFlo, Inc. has signed a letter of intent with Virginia-based Ganga Enviro Systems to be followed by an exclusive distribution rights throughout the US, Canada and other possible selected regions for its SteriPure™ line of UV point-of-use purification systems. The SteriPure™ system uses advanced technology to both remove harmful contaminants and destroy pathogens in potable water without the use of chemicals. The microprocessor-based pitcher system employs ultraviolet technology coupled with advanced adsorption and filtration resins to provide clean and pure drinking water in any setting. The rechargeable, battery operated system utilizes a multicolored LED indicator to show the system status and quality of filtered water at a glance. The SteriPure™ system was formally introduced at the Water Quality Association sponsored Aquatech USA 2007 Trade Exhibition in Orlando, Florida on March 29, 2007. The new pitcher and filter system will be marketed through Ultra Choice Water, Inc. The first level of internal testing resulted in a greater than 99% reduction in bacteria.

Several members of HydroFlo, Inc. management staff have been scheduled to attend a series of advanced level courses related to SEC Reporting, MN&A Regulations, SX Articles, and SK items, as well as insider trading rules and regulations. The first of these courses was held in Boston, MA this month.

HydroFlo, Inc. and Shine Holding (SHDG-PK) today jointly agreed to cancel the PLUS™ distribution agreement signed on 10/10/2006. Shine Holdings, Inc. had previously executed a letter of intent with HydroFlo, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYRF), to begin distribution of HydroFlo's patented PLUS™ System through a newly formed Shine Holdings subsidiary, Pipeline Treatment Systems (PTS). The distribution agreement included both domestic and worldwide markets, and required a purchase commitment of 10 systems in 2007, with increasing numbers of systems over the following five year span of the agreement.

As of April 20, 2007, no systems had been sold by SHDG nor had there been any apparent substantive sales activity to support the expectation that SHDG would be able to meet their purchase commitment for deliveries in 2007. In addition, since signing the original agreement, Shine Holdings had altered their business model to pursue markets outside of wastewater treatment, specifically in the field of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs), and aeration for various aquaculture applications.

As a result of these events, Shine Holdings had requested release from their obligations to HydroFlo under the agreement signed in October, 2006, and agreed to return all marketing and product literature provided by HydroFlo, Inc. Under these terms, HydroFlo has consented to this release under a "No Fault" clause in the contract, and released Shine Holdings from further financial obligations to HydroFlo.

HydroFlo Water Treatment, Inc:

HydroFlo Water Treatment, Inc. recently announced that a new odor control system is being recommended for installation at a facility in Western Pennsylvania. The system is to be installed within a lift station for a country club outside of Pittsburgh, PA and is expected to control odors and corrosion within the lift-station as well as downstream.

HydroFlo Water Treatment, Inc. announced this month that a HydroFlo PLUS™ system has been specified for installation in a Montreal, Canada subdivision for odor and corrosion control.

The engineering firm specified the HydroFlo Water Treatment PLUS™ system as the preferred technology for this new community over traditional, more costly methods. These traditional approaches frequently employ costly chemical addition and passive control systems, such as airspace biological treatment, for odor control but it was determined that the PLUS™ system would be more cost effective and reliable.

HydroFlo Water Treatment, Inc. also recently announced that a new odor control system is in the final design phase for installation at a facility in the Charlotte, NC area. The system is to be installed within a lift station for a new subdivision and is expected to control odors and corrosion within the lift station as well as downstream.

The final design using the HydroFlo Water Treatment PLUS™ system was specified as the preferred technology for this new facility by a regional engineering firm and by a private water treatment company rather than using more costly traditional approaches that frequently employ chemical addition and passive control systems, such as airspace biological treatment, for odor control but it was determined that the PLUS™ system was more cost effective and reliable and the operator would not have to store or feed potentially dangerous chemicals into the pipeline.
