I have struggled for years to avoid the green pond in the summer and I've tried so many different products to no avail. Finally, finally, I tried using Top Fin's Barley Water Clarifier in combination with their Bacteria Boost and bam! clear water all year long. I followed the direction as the label specifies for the initial dose and then the maintenance dose every second week. I have not had green water for 2 years and I can now see my fish at 4 feet deep. I will say, as a caveat, I do use an umbrella to shade a large area of the pond because it is not near any trees but it is definitely the top fin products that are keeping the water crystal clear throughout the hottest part of the year. So grateful and my fish are healthier for it. No sludge and no algae bloom, just happy little (okay big) fish swimming around. Thank you Top Fin! As to the previous review is it obvious that the person was impatient for results and did not use this product according to directions. As with anything worth having it takes a little time to clear up the established algae bloom but once it occurs it is clear and will stay clear as long as the maintenance dose is maintained. Always read the labels and follow the directions of any chemical you use.

Applied as directed into 50 gal pond with pump. No change. Applied again two days later. No change. Applied once more. The only thing I noticed is the distinct odor of wet straw (barley extract I presume).
