            I have a large fountain. I use an algaecide, but it's not enough to keep the water clean and I don't want to have to change the water. These seem to help. So far, I haven't had to change the water.

                I haven't really noticed a difference in the pond. It isn't getting any worse, so I guess that means that it's working. Gets waterlogged pretty fast and sinks to the bottom of the pond.

                                  We added a small waterfall feature to our garden this year and the mini barley bale cleared up the green scum that was accumulating within weeks. It causes it to sort of cling together so it can be scooped and removed much easier. Highly recommend this as a natural bird & wildlife friendly solution for clear water!!

                                  By the way we are keeping our water feature open this winter with a 250 watt farm bucket heater. So far so good.
