This is excellent stuff. It's listed on Lowes as electrical tape but it's actually rubber splicing tape.

Shop 3M 22-ft Electrical Tape at Lowes.com

I use it on all my connections and have never had water infiltration. Just stretch it while wrapping it around and you will have no problems. :)

Great tape. Plumbing supply sells the same tape under various names to seal leaking pipes. Its meant to be a permanent fix. After a while you will need a box cutter to get it off as it binds to itself into a solid mass. I also like to use heat shrink tubing. One of those long neck BBQ lighters does a great job of shrinking it. You will also need a sharp knife to get it off.

I also have used this type tape for decades. I cover it up with Scotch 3M brand electrical tape to provide extra UV protection.
