Anything I should change with my dosing?

Here are my current parameters.

GH- 22
KH- 14
PH- 7.2
CO2- ~28ppm based on kh and ph
Nitrate- 10ppm

Up until today I have been dosing 10-15ml of Flourish everyday in this tank. switched to the EI dosing method as I got my ferts and these were the results prior to adding ferts. I dosed 3/4 tsp kno3, 3/16 tsp kh2po4, 1/4 tsp k2so4 after testing my water. I run a continous water change drip system so I want to monitor my nitrates through out the week to see how it stands. I drip about 1/4 gph into my tank 24/7. Tank is 75g with ~22g in the sump. I run pressurized CO2 via a rex regulator that I run 24/7 as I found if I shut it off at night the PH has a huge swing as my tap is between 7.6-8.0 most days. Anyone with insite on this? Does anyone have their EI setup to auto dose?

Anyone with autodosing with EI? I may be trying to build some dosers soon.
