          Keep algae from building up in my water feature. We have used it for 1 month so far and it has been a success. I like the fact that it is not toxic to birds or other wild life, which most products are. This is the first summer we have not had a totally slimmed water fall.

                I first came across this product In England and brought a bottle home. We were delighted to find it available in the States. We have a small cascade and pool where the water recycles through a pump. It is prone to algae buildup which is difficult to eliminate, but barley straw extract keeps the water flowing which much less build up of any vegetation.

                    I tried this on a mid-size re-circulating fountain, re-circulating bird bath fountain, and still water bird baths, and sorry to say, nothing was helped. I ended up doing my usual,draining, cleaning with mold, mildew removing product, rinsing and re-filling. I have tried this in previous years and it seemed to work. Maybe this was past its shelf life? Anyway, waste of time and money.

                      Comments about Barley Straw Extract, 16 Oz.:

                      I use this product with barley straw balls in my rain-water-collecting tanks to keep the algae at bay. It does not do the trick completely but with white, partially see through tanks it is doing the job better than I expected. I have also used this in my chicken water containers that are in the sun a lot and it works great there!

                          I was looking for a product that I could use in a small fountain (20-30 gal.)that would inhibit the algae growth and not hurt the birds that drink the water. Unfortunately the Barley Straw Extract did not eliminate the algae. I used it according to the directions and then as the algae grew thicker I increased the amount used. This didn't work either. I would like to find a product that would kill the algae and not harm the birds. Guess I will keep looking.

                                Fountain looked clean for about 4 days and I added this product according to directions but after 10 days fountain had to be disassembled again and thoroughly cleaned. Did not seem to help.
