      We use this to keep our pond free of algae. We do't place it the plastic ball since the boarder collie takes it out. We just slip It uinder a plastic box the has many holes.

      Have used for several years with great results. The plastic ball broke long ago, so I just toss the refill into the pond and it works just as well.

        The refills are great. The hard part is separating the Barley Ball. Someone recommended breaking off the knobs and just drilling holes for zip strips to close it. Great idea!

            I have spent hundreds of dollars on chemicals to rid my pond of algie. Nothing ever worked. I didn't trust other comments about the Barley Ball, but it was my last resort. Words can't discribe the befor and after,and without chemicals!I will buy this product for the rest of my life. It is such a relief to finally have something that really works.

              We use this in our stock tanks and it works really well. I also appreciate the quality of your products. Everything I have purchased from you has been good, except the construction of the barley ball holder which we have passed on to you. Really appreciate that you strive for quality and not just low prices. I am not a shopper in a particular range. If I like it and it works, that is what I buy and I do not let price rule. I would not buy an inferior product just because it was less expensive.

                  After trying many other products, powers, and chemicals to control algae in my pond this product actually worked! I put the ball in the pond and after a few weeks the pond was so clear I saw the bottom for the first time.

                        Comments about Barley Ball Refill:

                        I have two ponds which require two balls in each to keep the algae down. Work great. My only complaint is replacing the barley in the plastic container. Plastic container is very hard to open and stay closed. I use fishing wire and tie it together.

                            For the second year in a row, this barley ball is not preventing algae, and I don't think it's even reducing it. It didn't work last year, but I thought perhaps it was because I introduced it to my pond too late in the season. This year I made sure to put the new one in early, but algae is growing. I loved the idea of a natural, non-chemical way to minimize algae, but this does not seem to work.
