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.

    10/10 would buy again.

    By Noel on Nov 5, 2020

    Okay I just got this a few weeks ago for my 100g stock pond and I was very skeptical. In fact the day after I put it in my water went from semi clear to unable to see anything. I was super frustrated. Then two days later it sank which the instructions say it shouldn’t for optimal results however I now have crystal clear water and am very happy with this product even if it didn’t entirely go as instructed. I’ve also monitored my parameters as I was unsure what this would do to its balance but honestly it hasn’t affected it. My children and I can now see our goldfish and enjoy this so much more now.

    They actually worked.

    By Lauriek on Dec 31, 2020

    The pond actually cleared up. I didn’t think it would because it was so bad. I used two because of the size of the pond. I’m in high hopes it will keep working when spring rolls around.

    Clear Pond

    By Claudia on Jul 19, 2020

    After doing a lot of reading, I finally tried the barley straw. At peak of summer, 113 degrees, my pond water is crystal clear. One con, it's very ugly to look at. Since I currently have a small free form pond it is a bit of an eye sore. Other than that, it's very effective and the price is right. Chewy gets your product to you very fast. I got my order in 36 hours with free shipping. Everything was correct, which sadly is not a given these days. Thank you Chewy

    POND TREATMENT

    By Princess on Jul 20, 2020

    Got this to clear up the water in koi pond in our back yard. Seemed to help at first but sank to the bottom sooner than expected. Now the water has a green tint to it.

    By HerdingDog on Jul 24, 2020

    These are working well for my decorative pond. I may try one in one of my watering troughs next and see how that works.
