How does it work?
When barley straw is added to water, it begins to decay. This decaying process releases lignin which then interacts with algae and causes it to die.
Completely safe and effective treatment contains no chemicals, pesticides or herbicides; no toxic side effects. Can be used with cattle, goats, sheep, swine, all breeds of horses, poultry, fish and even exotic animals. Also great for automatic waterers, bird baths, ornamental ponds and fountains.
Easy to use!
Just place one unopened burlap bag in tank. One bag is good for an average 200 gallon stock tank. For larger or extremely dirty tanks, use two bags. Begins working immediately but may take 7-10 days to notice its effects. Scoop out any floating debris. Replace every two months. Burlap bag is completely biodegradable.

We bought this on a trip to Oklahoma when I happened upon it in a small store while waiting for a tire repair. I actually thought to myself "nothing works but for the price I'll give it a shot". Well, 1 month later after placing in one of our horses watering troughs, where we were constantly fighting algae, the water is as clear as it is the day we first fill it. Shocked myself and my husband but we will definitely continue to order and use this in all our watering troughs from now on! thanks
