What are you doing to raise the pH? There are safe ways and there are bad ways that will stress and possibly kill your fish in the process. If it is steady in the tank at 8, there is no reason to be raising it further, given the issues this can cause.
If you have some sort of filter/softener on your faucet inside, it is a good idea to test some from the outside tap. The KH and GH has a significant bearing on pH adjustment that we can go into.
