What is it? Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets Plus is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment! Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. Manufactured using an exclusive proprietary pelleting process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn and other binders, the barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure the quality of these essential ingredients.
How does it work? It works in much the same way as ordinary barley straw...only faster! Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets in MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets +, only the breakdown compounds are released faster: dispersing equally throughout the water; reacting photochemically with sunlight; and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide-an oxidizing agent that also helps to keep the water clear-naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + are rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds!
Please note: MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + will leave a residual on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge Away will digest this organic residual.
Note: 4.4 lb bag is now packaged in a box for your convenience.

I will keep you posted i used another barley straw and have not get to this as of yet. My third purchase.I really like these people. I am 1000 miles away and i usually have my items in 4-5 days (EXCELLENT) All has been as expected with my product I ordered. With excellent service the way a business should be ran.Keep up the great service.
Makes the water crystal clear. And absolutely NO algae :) Maybe I didn't see them on this site, but a mesh bag makes it much easier to use. Maybe it's not necessary? Just add directly to the pond? I used a spare nut milk bag that I use for making tea. It's a fine enough mesh to keep the dissolved pellets from getting through.
