The value of pH will vary throughout the day.

For example, right before my lights come on, my pH level is 7.8 - 7.9. Before the lights go out at night, the pH level has risen to around 8.3 - 8.4.

You will probably want to measure magnesium at some point. A level of around ~1300 ppm is good.

Also a kit for iodine is a good idea. NSW has a level of ~.06 ppm of iodine in it.
