FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS REPORTS RESULTS FOR 1ST QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2004


VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 17, 2004 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: F
SI, FRANKFURT: FXT) the developer and manufacturer of Water$avr, the first commercially viable water evaporation retardant in the world, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2004.

Sales in the first quarter were $488,110, compared with $1,281,266 in the corresponding period a year ago, resulting in a net loss of $(250,861), or $(0.02) per basic weighted average share, compared with net income of $180,781, or $0.02 per basic weighted average share, in the first quarter of 2003. Basic weighted averge shares used in computing per share amounts for the quarters were 11,807,801 and 11,610,138, respectively.

“We believe that our sales results for the first quarter were an anomaly and came at a time when we were making substantial financial investments in the Company’s future, including intensified marketing efforts for our flagship Water$avr product and expenditures for a new in-house distribution operation for our rebranded EcoSavr swimming pool product,” stated President and Chief Executive Officer Dan O’Brien.

Mr. O’Brien noted that $479,000 in Water$avr sales to Ondeo Nalco in the first quarter of 2003 was not repeated in the first quarter of 2004. Our previous residential pool distributor placed a larger than usual order in the fourth quarter of 2003. In addition, a final $108,000 order from this former distributor of Tropical Fish, being rebranded as EcoSavr, was not shipped until April 1 and will be reflected in the second quarter financial results. The three items accounted for all of the quarter-over-quarter revenue change.

"Looking ahead, we anticipate a return to growth in revenues based on anticipated Water$avr sales that we are pursuing as well as an expected summer seasonal increase for our EcoSavr swimming pool product,” Mr. O’Brien added.

Flexible Solutions currently is focusing its marketing efforts on both Water$avr and EcoSavr. It recently received its first award from a major U.S. water authority, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, for the utilization on Water$avr technology. By reclaiming the distribution of its EcoSavr swimming pool product from an outside firm, FSI anticipates a doubling of revenue per unit.
