Barley Straw Double

Barley Straw Double is a natural decomposition of Barley Straw which gives rise to anti- algae factors.  These are effective against algae and blanket weed. This double pack treats 7000 litres (1600 gallons) for 6 months.  Barley straw is a natural method to maintenance of your pond, and to prevent potential damage to the pond in the long run. Even though barley cannot remove algae as fast as other chemical treatments, it works as a good long-term control method.  It can help stop algae coming back in future, which is why it has becoming more popular

  • Twin pack of Barley Straw takes 4 weeks to activate and must be placed in the water ideally before the algae problem starts.
  • Oxygen is essential for the process and the best place for the barley is on the water surface near a waterfall or pump outlet if available.
  • A piece of garden twine or string can be used to secure the barley to the edge or base of the pond.
  • For continuous control replace the barley straw pouches every six months. Remove the old pouch one month after replacing with a new one to ensure continuous control.
