Our Pond Keeper product line incorporates products that address water treatment needs of all type and size of ponds from fish ponds to water garden to farm ponds.

Pond Bacteria. Just about every type of pond can benefit from the use of pond bacteria. Pond bacteria are vital in keeping organic waste build-up down and help reducing ammonia and nitrite levels. Fish ponds and other water features that are prone to heavy organic loads, whether it be from fish waste, fish food, dead leaves etc, are also the most at risk of developing poor water quality. Pond bacteria essentially eat and digest these types of waste and convert them into water and carbon dioxide. Our pond bacteria products are available in several formulations making application to any pond environment simple.

Barley Straw Extract. Barley straw can be a controversial pond water treatment as some people swear by it and others have had limited results. For years people have placed barley bails/ straw in their pond as an algae control measure, however this results in a poor aesthetic picture, particularly in small ponds. Our Barley Straw Extract is just that, an extract of the acids and enzymes that are released when barley straw is broken down. This concentration allows for a bottle of our product to equal that of several bails.

Our pond water clarifier is one of the most concentrated liquid flocculants on the market making it economical for small ponds, but also applicable for larger ones.
