As I expand the number of probes that I am installing I need a way to track which probe is which. When I first started I would wrap white tape around the outside of a probe on the wire lead and use a water proof marker and give the probe a index number. Since I needed different lengths of wire leads and the fact that the wire is placed in water and under gravel situations the tape idea did not work to well. So next best thing was to engrave the Stainless Steel probe ends with an index number. This solved my problem in tracking each probe.
