Ultra Choice Water Announces the Arrival of UCW Shower Filters

RALEIGH, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- Ultra Choice Water, Inc. (UCW), the fourth portfolio company of HydroFlo, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYRF), today announces the arrival of UCW Shower Filters in stock and now available to purchase on the UCW website,

The filters are available with or without a shower head and the filters themselves easily connect to any conventional shower head. The filters packaged with a massage shower head are available in two styles: the Luxury Handheld Shower Filter, which features a stylish chrome finish, and a massage shower head with a 5.75 ft Duro-flex hose. The standard Luxury Shower Filter is available in a chrome or white finish along with a massage shower head as well.

UCW Shower Filters conveniently provide 12 months of filtration and effectively remove chlorine, Chloramines, harmful VOCs, THMs, pesticides, sulfur, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide ("rotten egg" odor), iron oxides ("rust water"), dirt, sediment and other odors. UCW Shower Filters work by filtering the water through two stages of KDF Media (an NSF Certified media) and Granular Activated Carbon. First, water travels down through the center of the filter, passing through the KDF media for de-chlorination and enhances pH balance. Next, the water travels through the GAC (granular activated carbon) stage to reduce contaminants and finally exits through the shower head, to provide a safe, healthy showering experience.

Deanna Britt, Chief Operating Officer of Ultra Choice Water, explains her excitement of the arrival of the new inventory. "I am excited to finally have the UCW Shower Filters available for our customers. With all the negative health effects being publicized regarding chlorine in our drinking and bathing water, I am very pleased to be able to offer an effective solution to help safeguard against the chlorine and other contaminants found in our water supply," stated Ms. Britt. "The Shower Filters are an excellent addition to an already impressive product line of water filtration systems available to our customers."
