PH Maintenance

My reef tank has been up and running for a little over 4 months. Water parameters are perfect & stable. All of my livestock appears healthy and I haven't been having any losses.

I clean the sponge in my overflow box every few days and replace the 50 micron pad in my wet/dry every 2 weeks. Other than that, I have done no maintenance. I was wondering if I should be doing any maintenance on the 2 PH's or the main pump in system.

I clean my pump in old SW every time I do a PWC. I clean my phs about every 1-2 months, to keep the impeller and other parts clean.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
