Comments about Barley Ball Refill:

We use this to keep our pond free of algae. Very easy to use. Our dog kept pulling the ball container out so we just put a rock in the bag to sink the refill. So easy and works great.

Haved used it for years

Comments about Barley Ball Refill:

I have put this bag of barley straw in my pond for quite a few years and do not have an algae problem. I put it directly into the biofalls and weight it down with the bag of charcoal so it stays inside and out of sight. I do not use the plastic ball so just buy the refill each year.

      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.

                  The refill is a necessity, and the barley ball in our natural pond looks decorative.
