Common Barley Questions

How does Barley Straw work? As the barley straw decays in the presence of oxygen (and possibly sunlight); natural chemicals are released or produced that help clean and clear water. With Barley Extract, there is no waiting for the barley bale to decompose. When treating your pond according to label instructions, Barley Extract can lead to much cleaner and clearer pond water.

Is Barley Straw a form of algaecide? No, Barley Straw is not registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency as a pesticide, and therefore no claims are made regarding its use in preventing, removing, controlling or eliminating algae. This is an all-natural product, and does not contain any known pesticides, chemical additives, or even "ingredients"- it is just barley straw.

I use barley straw extract in the water features in my garden railroad and in my bird baths. It keeps the water clear and prevents debris from growing on the bird bath bowl.

I just wanted to let you know what a GREAT! product the Pond Logic Liquid Barley extract is. This is the 2nd year we have used it and we have not been disappointed in the results. This stuff is like magic...we will never use anything else. For about 6 weeks we have had crystal clear water and just use it as maintenance once every 3 weeks.

I use this in early spring to jump start my pond. I follow it with the DefensePAC and my pond looks great. I prefer the liquid because I would use the pellets and the KOI always ate them before the pellets had a chance to work. It is also much easier than pellets or straw.


Great stuff

We were cleaning our skimmer bags every day due to all the debris. One day after using the Barley Straw Extract the skimmer bags were clean, the water was sparkling clear, and we could see the bottom of the bond again.

This is the first time I have used Barley Straw Extract Plus...but it is wonderful. I am the type to jump in first and figure out the details later..so I have had a pond for about 5 years and never treated the water...so this year I learned that barley straw extract is necessary to help keep the water clear and clean and I have finally started treating my water. It is wonderful...

I ordered a small bottle to start because I was skeptical. Today I'm ordering a larger bottle because this is a fantastic product. After two uses the muck is clearing off the rocks, the water is crystal clear, and the fish and snails are healthy. Will definitely continue to use on a regular basis.

My pond is about 3500 gallons and I have been using other Barley extract from other places, and I have used a lot over 1 gallon but could not get rid off the debris (still green on the liner). A week after I applied 8 oz Pond Logic Barley Extract from The Pond Guy, the debris turned black (dead) the water got a lot clearer, the fish look happier.
