Barley Straw Pellets work faster and with less mess than traditional barley bales, pillows, or pads.
The dissolve quickly, help buffer the pH of the water, and they reduce phosphorus levels in the pond as well.
Dosage rates may vary depending on the pond's condition and suggest rates are listed on the package.
For example, in a pond of 2,000 gallons, the average dose is approximately 90oz of product.
Apply every six weeks. You may start your applications any time of the year
- As the first application biodegrades & releases the active
humic acids, the second application becomes ready to treat the pond
& keep the natural biological cycle functional. A Fall treatment
will save you problems in the spring.
- Be patient- natural processes take time. Initially the water may become cloudy or "tea colored" but will clear shortly.
- Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is the most convenient
form of barley available today. The barley pellets should be
introduced where water is flowing & the depth is less than three
feet. You may also place some barley pellets in your filter media box.
