Red Earth Naturals Introduces Barley Pond Straw, An Organic Product That Keeps Fish Pond Water Clean
Can Be Used Year Round to Eliminate String Algae
Koi pond algae control: a first-line, natural approach to keeping the water in your fish pond clear. Filamentous algae clouds your pond water, creating an unhealthy environment for koi fish. It literally chokes the oxygen in your koi pond. Filamentous algae can cause disease in koi fish and can even cause fatalities. This makes for a sad pond and a sad pond owner. A smart method to clean pond water is to use barley pond straw. To get the barley straw to work, just place it in an area of the pond where there is moving water and sunlight. As the pond straw starts to break down, it releases hydrogen peroxide into the water. This gently cleans the fish pond and adds oxygen to the water. It's good for your fish, healthy for your pond and good for you. Pesticide-Free Premium Barley Straw for Ponds Exclusively from Red Earth Naturals.
During the warmer months it's not uncommon for outbursts of algae blooms. These blooms can foul the water and make it difficult for fish and other aquatic organisms to survive. Not only are algae blooms unattractive, they can also create an unpleasant odor. By applying organic barley pond straw during fall and winter it's possible to keep ponds clean and clear. By the time spring and summer arrives the water will be in great condition to prevent the development of algae blooms.
Using barley straw to treat ponds is not a new concept. This natural product has been used for centuries throughout Europe to improve freshwater quality and support aquatic ecosystems. Unlike other straws, barley straw will last longer and is more efficient. This makes this product a cost effective solution for routine pond maintenance.
Happy Red Earth Naturals customer Chris has experienced firsthand the benefit of using barley straw throughout the year to maintain pond health: "Red Earth Naturals Premium Pond Straw really helped to clean up my pond. I love that it's organic and safe for my fish. Although you can start using it at any time, my advice is to use it all year round. Using it in the fall and winter helps prevent algae blooms in spring and summer." With all customer feedback very positive, consumers can expect to get great benefits from using this product.
As Chris mentions, using barley straw throughout the year is the best option. This will stop the initiation of excess algal growth in the warmer months and significantly reduce maintenance time.
However, in the situation where an algae bloom is already present, this straw will still effectively treat water. It will take several weeks to clean depending on initial water quality and temperature. The process will be faster with warmer temperatures and smaller treatment areas.
The reason why certified organic barley straw is so effective for protecting water quality and pond ecosystems is that it uses natural biological reactions to eliminate blooms without disrupting other ecosystem processes. As the straw slowly decomposes in the pond it releases organic compounds that inhibit algae growth, effectively clearing and cleansing the water.
The fact that Red Earth Naturals' barley straw is sourced locally from certified organic crops is great news for pond owners. Non-organic alternatives are detrimental to aquatic ecosystems and over time toxins will accumulate to kill fish and other animals and plants.
Uslng Red Earth Naturals' barley straw for ponds is very simple. The pond cleanser comes in convenient, easy-to-use super-flow bags. The bags should be tied near moving water, submerged 2-3 feet below the surface for the best results. Initially the straw bag will float on the pond surface, although it doesn't take long to sink to the required depth. Each bag will treat up to 1,000 gallons and last 3 to 4 months. Prior to the straw completely disintegrating, it's best to replace with a new bag. This will ensure that good water quality is maintained.
Anyone looking for an eco-friendly option to keep their pond in top condition all-year-round will be impressed with Red Earth Naturals' certified organic barley pond straw. It's an excellent eco-friendly option for any pond owner. As bonus, Red Earth Naturals offer each customer an e-book with plenty of great tips on how to keep their pond ecosystem in great shape.
