      Comments about Barley Ball:

      Apparently the application to a static pond is not it's purpose.

      Easy to use but had no discernible effect. Gave it three stars for ease of use and shipping. However, has not cleared the water......

        My pond was full of algae, to the point that we could not see to the bottom. Now it is clear again, and I will be adding fish.

            I bought this for my Dad's pond - as a fathers day gift. Within 2 weeks his pond was clearer and looked great. I was amazed at how fast this cleared up the water! The fish don't mind it either!

              Comments about Barley Ball:

              The barley ball works very well. I ordered it in the spring only to get the refills and find out the ball was backordered until the middle of July! So we used just the refill by itself and it works fine without the ball. Just got the ball last week. It seemed rather odd that something that is meant to be used in the spring/summer with the refills was not available when needed.

                        I raise slider turtles and their pond area gets quite dirty. I placed the barley ball in the pond and after one week I have noticed a difference in the color of the water. What was dark from leaves falling in it is now see through. I love this product!

                          We always have a barley ball in our pond to keep the water clear and clean. We like that it lasts for a long time and is relatively inexpesive to replace when necessary.

                            This is one of several items we recently purchased from GS. We put it into our small, natural pond and two weeks later much of the algae has disappeared. We are trying to prepare for introduction of friends' goldfish into our pond. I wish I had tied a length of rope onto each of them (2) in order to move them to locations I want for them instead of where the breezes send them.

                                I used the barley ball in a livestock pond. I never seen anything change. Was disappointed. Multiple uses MAY be needed but at the cost I doubt that I try, since I didn't see any results.
