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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Haved used it for years
By Conifer Nut
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.

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.
Works Great for us

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!
A must have for every pond owner!

About Me Budget Shopper
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.

from Gardner, Colo.
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.
Barley Refills Keep Ponds Clean
from Kenner, LA
We love the way the barley keeps our pond clean and clear. Our pond is chemical-free and the water is always sparkling. I'd recommend this to everyone.
Finally something that works
from St. Paul, MN
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.
Quickly makes a clear difference.

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