Pacific Sands Launches New Products and Bold New Look at International Pool and Spa Show in Orlando

New ecoONE® Sales Partners and Distribution Channels to Be Announced in the Coming Weeks

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - Pacific Sands, Inc. (OTCBB: PFSD), manufacturer of environmentally friendlier chemical and water treatment solutions, announced today that the company has successfully launched the 2008 pool and spa season with a splash at the International Pool and Spa Expo in Orlando.

The company introduced a new look for its ecoONE (e1) pool and spa water care products for the US, European and world markets. ecoONE pool and spa products are safer, low-chemical water treatment alternatives.

"The winter industry trade show is a bellwether for the sales growth that Pacific Sands can expect in the approaching buying season," said Pacific Sands president and CEO Michael Wynhoff. "Judging from the reactions of the industry leading distributors, manufactures and dealers with whom we met, I believe our new look and new programs will net a meaningful expansion of sales in the coming year, well beyond our current substantial rate of growth."

In addition to the high level of activity at the show, Pacific Sands ecoONE representatives had numerous off site meetings with industry leaders including a top US spa product distributor, major European product importers and spa manufacturers.

The recent slowing of growth in the multi-billion dollar pool and spa industry has actually had a positive impact on the ecoONE and Rain Forest Blue sales. Dealers, distributors and manufacturers seek unique alternatives and programs to boost sales that may be lagging in other areas of their business. While industry sales are down, Pacific Sands has reported greater than expected revenues with sales up in excess of 50% over the same period last year.

Contracts, partners and results of the 2007 International Pool & Spa Expo in Orlando will be forthcoming.
