Added washed red lava rock to grow bed this afternoon. Also ran first pH test of the water. Looks to be in the 8 range. Will monitor this week to see if adding the lava changes the level.

Hard to know if the rock affected you pH if you didn't test the water's pH before adding the rock.
Hard water is really common so starting with a pH of 8 is not uncommon. Once the system cycles up the pH should come down but it might be worth airing some tap water out for a day and then testing your source water's pH just to know what you are starting with.
