Can tape over the probe cause erroneous readings?

#8
I have not tested or seen test results regarding the taping of sensor caps. I have seen test sights with several pieces of duct tape placed over the caps and I would suspect that this would be an issue on long term testing.

The concrete needs to emit vapor to dry. Any barrier to emissions will create an abnormally high reading area (such as an area where pallets of materials were stacked for several months). We know moisture vapor doesn't travel sideways through a slab, so I wonder how much a small amount of tape, say 4" by 6" over the sensor, could effect the reading.

My gut feeling is that it could throw it off quite a bit on long term testing.
