Drs. Foster and Smith All-Natural Barley Straw Bales are an all-natural, environmentally safe, effective and economical way to maintain a clean, clear and healthy pond year round.
Up to 1,000 Gallons: 1 bale
Set one bale in an area of the pond with good water flow. The bale can tethered or tied to keep it in place. Do not weigh down the bale to sink it to the pond bottom. While there may be a more immediate improvement in pond clarity, it is more common to see results after two to three weeks. It is normal for bales to become waterlogged and sink from view after several weeks.
Replace each bale every three months.
