Use Barley Straw Bales to keep LARGER ponds clear of algae the natural way.

Treating a pond with Barley Straw Bales could not be easier - simply throw them into the pond! As the barley straw rots, it releases compounds which stop algae AND blanket weed growth. The throwers also have the same bacteria added as is in the Clarity product to help reduce algae re-growth by reducing nutrient levels. When the water is cold it takes approximately 4 weeks for the barley straw to start rotting and to start working, but the process happens much quickly in the summer - only 1-2 weeks when the water is above 20c. For best results add new bales every 3 months, so that new barley straw is in place working BEFORE the straw in the original bales have completely rotted i.e. remove the old nets once a new thrower has been in-situ for a few weeks. Supplied in 2kg bale - each Barley Straw Bale will treat a 80 sqm pond (surface area) for 4 months. N.B. For very green ponds or where the blanket weed is bad, please use DOUBLE the number of bales i.e. use 1 per 40 sqm.
