Barley Straw


Barley Straw

Pond Clear is a 100% safe and natural solution for treating algae and blanketweed in ponds, and will not affect the health or wellbeing of pond life, ornamental fish or aquatic plants. It is also safe for pets and wildlife. Barley straw is proven to be an effective solution to clear blanketweed and algal problems in ponds and lakes. Ideally introduce Pond Clear from early Spring so that the barley straw can begin to break down biologically before any algae starts to grow. If algae & blanketweed are already present in the pond, remove as much as possible before introducing Pond Clear.

Clear Pond

Preferably fully submerge the Pond Clear net bag where there is water movement, ie on the outlet side of a filtration system or near a fountain. The compostable net bag will gradually decompose and should be replaced about monthly throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. The decomposing straw inhibits the algae growth and the rate depends on the temperature of the water. Decomposition happens more quickly in warmer water and we would recommend removing the dead algae as it appears.

Pond Clear is grown and packaged in the UK. It is supplied in compostable netting with a 100% recyclable label, it treats 9,000 litres (2,000 gallons) for approximately three months.
