No, no. There is really no such thing as pH being "good". The value of pH at any given moment is only a reflection of that exact moment in time. pH bounces within a range over the course of a day, and the range that it bounces within is impacted largely by alkalinity.
So, if you test for pH at 8.2, you have no way of knowing if 8.2 is the maximum value that pH is reaching, and possibly dropping as low as 7.8 or even 7.6 during the night hours, of if the pH is more steady, holding in the 8.2 to 8.3 range. Bottom line, you need to test for alkalinity to make a more educated statement about pH.
So, have you tested for alkalinity? What was the result?
