My tap PH is 7.0
My pond PH reading is 7.8

Should I be worried. It has been 7.8 all this year. So it is stable in the pond.

if you leave a glass of water to stand for a few hours its PH will usually increase.

if you have air going into the pond water then this will increase the ph by driving off CO2 (acidic) and promoting more O2 (alkaline) hence the more air you add the higher your ph will go to a certain extent.
