When To Apply Barley Pellets:
Barley Straw Pellets can be applied when pH levels are between 6.5 and 9.0 and can be used all season long.
How To Apply Barley Pellets:
Barley Straw Pellets can be applied in skimmer units, filter units, waterfall units or in any area of water movement. Add 5 lbs of Barley Straw Pellets in the provided media bag for ponds up to 1,000 gallons and leave it in for up to 3 months. After three months it is best to replace the bag with new pellets and begin a new bag. If the bag should be left in longer than two months the barley will begin to rot and could create an unsafe condition within the pond.
