Can tape over the probe cause erroneous readings?

RE: Can tape over the probe cause erroneous readings?
Interesting stuff.

Because of problems I've had with sensor contamination or flat out destruction (from water) after placement, I caulk the orange caps after initial place AND cover the caps with bright color tape. I also use a marker and write "TEST IN PROGRESS DO NOT DISTURB" on the tape. I also ask the GC to ask workers to do their best to not disturb my test locations. This seems to work, but I never thought of the tape having an adverse affect on my results.
