Previously known as Aquahydrotech, Ecopond Barley Straw Extract is an eco-friendly product for the treatment of algae and blanket weed, with a new name but the same great performance.
It enhances the natural water chemistry of your garden pond, leaving it clean and clear. It uses aqueous barley straw which decomposes in the water, releasing hydrogen peroxide which kills algae blooms. It does not use any synthetic chemicals or pesticides which can upset the balance within your pond.
Microbes are also released during the process. They eat the nutrients in the water which means that algae can no longer grow. This treatment cannot be overdosed, making it safe for use with pond life and wildlife too.
