NEWS RELEASE

         FSI ANNOUNCES Full Year, 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTS Conference call
         scheduled for Tuesday April 3rd, 11:00am Eastern time, 8:00am
                                  Pacific Time
                            See dial in number below


VICTORIA,  BRITISH COLUMBIA,  April 2, 2018 - FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS  INTERNATIONAL,
INC. (NYSE Amex:  FSI,  FRANKFURT:  FXT), is the developer and  manufacturer  of
biodegradable  polymers  for oil  extraction,  detergent  ingredients  and water
treatment as well as crop nutrient  availability  chemistry.  Flexible Solutions
also  manufactures  biodegradable  and  environmentally  safe  water and  energy
conservation technologies. Today the Company announces financial results for the
full year ended December 31, 2017.

Mr. Daniel B. O'Brien,  CEO, states, "We are disappointed in the revenue for the
quarter and the year. Even after allowing for discontinued Ecosavr business, the
year was down a few per cent. We will do our best to regain growth in 2018.  The
accounting  treatment  for  cleanup  after the fire  makes the  financials  very
confusing  and we  caution  that the  effects  of the fire  will  show up in our
financials  for several more  quarters - at least until the end of Q1 2019." Mr.
O'Brien continues,  "There were also raw material price increases in the quarter
that affected  margins and profits.  We will move toward  passing these costs on
over the next several months."

     o    Sales for the full year 2017 were down approximately 5% at $15,494,325
          when  compared to  $16,246,014  for full year 2016.  The result was an
          after  tax GAAP  accounting  net  income  of  $1,754,741  or $0.15 per
          weighted  average  share  for  2017,  compared  to an  after  tax GAAP
          accounting  net income of  $1,793,334,  or $0.16 per weighted  average
          share in full year 2016. Note: The 2017 financial statement includes a
          significant  insurance  payout as a result  of the fire at the  Taber,
          Alberta factor (see "Gain on involuntary  disposition").  Furthermore,
          as a result of the fire, any additional  significant insurance payouts
          or related expenses (such as write down of inventory,  short term loss
          of  revenue,  etc) will make  year  over  year  financial  comparisons
          difficult in the short term.

     o    Basic  weighted  average  shares used in computing  earnings per share
          amounts  for the full year were  11,485,580  and  11,464,270  for full
          year, 2017 and full year, 2016 respectively.

     o    Non-GAAP  operating cash flow:  For the 12 months ending  December 31,
          2017, net income reflects  $402,708 of non-cash charges  (depreciation
          and stock option expenses), as well as gain (loss) on disposition (and
          involuntary  disposition)  of  equipment,  interest  income,  loss  on
          investment, write down of inventory,  deferred tax expense, and income
          tax.  These  items are items  not  related  to  operating  or  current
          operating activities.  When these items are removed, the Company shows
          operating cash flow of $1,914,148,  or $0.17 per share.  This compares
          with  operating cash flow of  $3,691,711,  or $0.32 per share,  in the
          corresponding  12  months  of 2016 (see the  table  that  follows  for
          details of these calculations).

The NanoChem  division  continues to be the dominant  source of revenue and cash
flow for the Company. New opportunities  continue to unfold in detergent,  water
treatment,  oil field  extraction and agricultural use to further increase sales
in this  division.  In past  years the  NanoChem  division  sales have been less
volatile  quarter over quarter,  however due to increasing sales to agriculture,
revenue  seasonality  may  become  larger.  Also new  sales  opportunities  have
appeared in the  WaterSavrTM  division as a result of the ongoing drought in the
southern United States.  Many  municipalities are water stressed and are seeking
ways to conserve water.

*    a conference  call has been  scheduled for 11:00 am Eastern  Time,  8:00 am
     Pacific Time, on Tuesday April 3, 2018. CEO, Dan O'Brien will be presenting
     and answering questions on the conference call. To participate in this call
     please dial 1-800-289-0438 (or 1-323-994-2083)  just prior to the scheduled
     call time. The conference call title,  "Full Year 2017  Financials," may be
     requested.
