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. With 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 know pesticides, chemical additives, or even "ingredients"- it is just barley straw.

I purchased 2 and both have sank so as a floating planter I would say they don't work. ***Response from The Pond Guy- customer has been given credit towards the purchase of another product.View entire review
