Clear Pond All Natural Barley Bundles have been developed to provide a natural, chemical free solution to clarity in ponds. Made from a matting of barley straw and natural cotton netting, they have a large surface area allowing easy access of water and oxygen to the straw and free release of natural compounds. There are many open ends of straw all round the edges which allows water to penetrate into the hollow stems, greatly speeding the breakdown process.
Lavender Barley Bundles
These new Lavender Barley Bundles have been developed as a result of research by the Centre for Aquatic Plant Management, where it was discovered that lavender could be even more effective than barley, though it requires much more oxygen. Combining the benefits of both materials, these pads are effective but must be used with a pumped system to ensure proper oxygenation.
How Does it Work?
Soluble carbohydrates released from the surface of the straw act on the monocellular green water algae causing them to clump together (flocculate) and sink to the bottom of the pond. Green water is often cleared in just a few days. Making the best use of the oxygen in water, safe aerobic decomposition is assured and the natural compounds which keep ponds clear are released into the water. The process continues for about six months, giving long term protection.
