We use this liquid barley straw extract and peat to keep our pond water clear and algae free. Although the barley bales do work, they require weeks of exposure before they function. Microbe-Lift liquid extract works immediately and there are no bales to hide or wraps to pick out of the pond/filter later. The peat helps our hard-water situation, too.
