Default CDN Thermometer use

I have a CDN ProAccurate probe thermometer (the kind that has a digital face attached to a 6ish-inch probe.

For heating up my strike water, would it be effective and safe for the thermometer to leave the probe stuck into the water via a hole in the lid of my kettle?

How far do I need to insert the thermometer into the water to ensure accurate reading?

It reads at the tip, about the first inch. Yes, it will be fine stuck through the lid.
