Description

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.
  • Works naturally without the use of harmful or synthetic chemicals.
  • Byproducts are released as it decays that aid in maintaining water clarity.
  • Lasts for up to 6 months and treats up to 2,000 gallons of water; use continuously for best results.
  • Each bale should last around 6 months but a new bale should be placed in the water at least one month before the old bale is removed.

Barley Straw

Instructions
  • 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.

  • Keeps water sparkling

    Takes a couple weeks to see difference in water, but after a month, water stays very clear. I tie bale to basket so it floats at surface. If bale sinks, you are suppose to let it dry out and use again. Works for us!

    Works in the fish pond. Chewy is very reasonable with their prices.

  • Works great!

    I am using this item in my half-oak barrel water garden. I am only using half of a bale, though, and was skeptical at first. The water became discolored from the straw and I was concerned about my fish, (Dojo Loach ((sp)) and Mosquito Fish, but the water cleared up beautifully after a week or so and the fish are happy and healthy.

  • Natural way to get your pond water clear!

    By on

    Every summer my outdoor pond water has been turning so green that I can hardly see the koi. Barley straw is a simple solution and non toxic to your fish as well as turtles! It's also economical! I just place the barley right at the top of the waterfall and within a few days the water become clear again. Truly helps with the algae growth that tends to happen during the sunny summer months. I've priced compared also and Chewy has a very low price on the two bundle pack of barley straw! I highly recommended this product!

    I have read that barley straw helps keep pond water in good condition. That is great for the critters living in the pond.
