After a few years of experimentation I have been able to find the items that keep my 5000 gallon pond clear and clean with low maintenance. The pond sees a lot of sun so it was always a challenge to control algae and clarity. The combination of items used; Microbe Lift Concentrated Barley Straw Extract, Pond Care Algae Fix and an Aquascape IonGenG2 electronic Pond clarifier. Of course you still need filtration so I use 2 Fishmate PUV-6000 pressurized filters feeding the waterfall running on a 5300 GPH pump in the skimmer. I also have a 5000 GPH pump with no filter on the bottom also feeding the water fall just for recirculation. I just back flush the filters once a week and check the skimmer....crystal clean to the bottom 6 feet down :-)

Barley straw extract
My pond water has been crystal clear since using the barley extract.

We bought a house with an existing koi pond. We are caring for the previous owner's fish until he gets his place set up. When we moved in, the water was crystal clear. We followed the direction of the fish's owner and fed, and backwashed exactly as he said. But a couple of months later the water started to turn green. We thought it would only last a month or so. We tried several things and nothing would work. The water balance is good etc. After 8 months of solid green thick looking water, he heard about and told us about this website and we tried the barley in addition to the microbe lift. What a difference!!!!! We started to see a clearing of the water in a couple of days. After a couple of weeks, the water was back to looking like a bathtub again :) Using it monthly now for maintenance. Thank you Doctors Foster and Smith!
