Prevent Dried Drains: Brodi VapourBlock to the Rescue!

Closing up a country home or cottage for an extended period can present its fair share of challenges. One common issue that arises during these closures is dried drains, which can result in unpleasant odors and potential plumbing problems. However, with the right tools and products at hand, you can mitigate these issues effectively. Enter Brodi VapourBlock, a citrus-based dry drain maintainer that acts as a powerful odor stopper and sewer gas smell eliminator. In this article, we will delve into how this remarkable product can be used to prevent dried drains, keeping your country home or cottage fresh and odor-free during periods of closure.

Understanding the Problem: Dried Drains

When a property is left unoccupied for an extended period, the water in the plumbing system evaporates, leaving behind dried drains. This can result in foul odors emanating from floor drains, sinks, and other plumbing fixtures. Additionally, the absence of water in the plumbing traps can allow sewer gases to escape into the living spaces and allow insects and rodents to enter.

The Solution: Brodi VapourBlock

A simple yet effective solution to combat dried drains and prevent sewer gas odors. This citrus-based dry drain maintainer is designed to create a vapor barrier that seals off drains, trapping water vapor and preventing evaporation. Here’s how it works

Easy Application

Incredibly straightforward. Simply remove the cap, pur down the drain opening, and let it work its magic. The self-levelling feature ensures that both sides of the p-trap are sealed. It offers long-lasting protection against dried drains.

Citrus-Based Formula

What sets the Brodi VapourBlock apart is its citrus-based formula. Unlike traditional drain maintainers that use harsh chemicals or oils, this product harnesses the power of natural citrus extracts. Not only does it effectively prevent odors, but it also leaves behind a refreshing citrus scent, making your country home or cottage a pleasant place to return to.

Versatile Application

Suitable for a wide range of drains, including floor drains, sink drains, and shower drains and toilets. Whether you’re closing up your cottage for the winter or leaving your country home unoccupied for an extended vacation, this product will keep your drains fresh and odor-free.


Closing up a country home or cottage shouldn’t mean returning to unpleasant odors and plumbing problems caused by dried drains. With the Brodi VapourBlock, you can effectively prevent these issues and maintain a fresh and welcoming environment during periods of closure. By creating a vapor barrier that prevents water evaporation, this citrus-based dry drain maintainer acts as a powerful odor stopper and sewer gas smell eliminator and a deterrent to rodents and insects.

Investing in the Brodi VapourBlock is a small but impactful step towards preserving the integrity of your plumbing system and ensuring a pleasant return to your country retreat. Say goodbye to foul odors and hello to a fresh, citrus-scented atmosphere.
