Is a common way of preventing it from evaporating. If you are concerned about the possibility of it turning rancid, use mineral oil, or a high quality motor oil such as Mobil 1.
The idea is to prove if the evaporation is the problem.
When you take the screen off of the drain, can you look in with a flashlight and see standing water?
Please post back on this same string.
