See things more clearly with the Summit Clear-Water Barley Straw Pond Treatment. The barley straw works to naturally keep aquariums and fountain water clear—without the need for synthetic chemicals. As it slowly decays, byproducts are released that aid in maintaining water clarity, which are harmless to fish and other plants in the pond. Just drop it in, and enjoy the results! Barley straw may be used at any time, but best results have been reported when starting in early spring when the water temperature is low. Bales should remain floating for maximum exposure to sunlight and oxygen, which aids in the decomposition process and accelerates the pond clearing benefits.

Key Benefits
  • Micro bale of barley straw keeps pond water clear and is safe for all fish, plants and animals.

Barley Straw

  • Calculate approximate water content of pond. Formula: Length x Width x Depth (in feet) multiply total by 7.5 to give formula in gallons.
  • Determine how many bales are required to treat pond.
  • Place bale on the surface of the pond, preferably near waterfall or filter outlet. Do not allow bales to sink to the bottom of the pond. If bale sinks, remove from pond for 24 hours to dry and then put it back.
  • Allow one month for the bale to become effective.
  • Replace each bale after 6 months of use. For continuous treatment, after 5 months, place a new bale next to the old one. Then remove the oldest one at the 6 month mark.
  • For best results, keep barley straw bale floating on the pond year round.
