Product Description

The NEW way to defeat blanketweed.

Those chemists at PondXpert have been hard at work again and we think they have hit the jackpot with this idea. New for 2018 - these barley balls are packed with natural barley straw enzymes. Simply toss into your pond weekly to stop the algae from growing!

Features

  • Each ball (8 in total) treats 5,000 litres (1,100 gallons)

  • Effectively combats pond blanketweed growth

  • Simply throw one ‘ball’ into your pond each week

  • Safe for fish, wildlife, pets, and your UV

  • Must be used in water temperatures above 10°

With regular applications this product definitely helps, the balls themselves are very fragile and need careful handling if you want the satisfaction of being able to throw them into your pond, otherwise you have to guesstimate the amount of mush to apply.

Good Morning


Thank you for your feedback, though I am sorry to hear that this treatment has not worked.


The PondXpert Barley Straw balls are used as a preventative measure to stop blanketweed from growing; however, they are not to be used as a treatment for Blanketweed that is already established in a pond. Blanketweed can be tricky to get rid of, we have two handy blogs with loads of useful tips that may be of interest to you:
-https://www.pondkeeper.co.uk/blog/keep-blanket-weed-at-bay-this-summer
-https://www.pondkeeper.co.uk/blog/blanketweed-faqs


I hope this helps but if you have any further queries, please let me know.

Best wishes
Liam

Easy application, the balls give great value and so far they seem to be working well on my pond water. Great value for money and I will buy again

Not noticed any improvement in water quality yet despite regular dosing. Some of the balls had broken down into liquid soup, so not easy to determine how much product you are adding to the pond
