Rival Technologies Prototype Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 11, 2005) - Rival
Technologies Inc., (OTCBB:RVTIF), announced today that engineers have
completed "in-lab" tests of a special pump and electronic control block
used to control the pump. The pump is very small in dimension and
supplies water required by the technology. It is an important component
of Rival's Continuous Water Injection (CWI) system for use in trucks and
buses. The tests were successful.

Engineers are now working on design of a small water softener system
that will allow CWI to use regular tap water.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Robin J. Harvey, President
