Could it possibly be a problem with the temperature inside your logger box rather than the water temperature?  Maybe Shannon can pipe in and confirm, but I remember that we used to have issues like this when we were using black boxes with clear lids facing summer sun.  I think the Mayfly’s ADC starts acting up when it gets too hot.  Are you recording the Mayfly’s DS3231 temperature?  It might show something.

I haven’t found a way to re-temperature-correct a depth sensor that’s built-in temperature correction has gone awry.
