Help with co2

Hi all
a friend of mine got hold of a established 200g tank with 50g sump,powerheads,huge skimmer,loads of corals,LR,LS,controller,reactors,co2,sensors wave maker etc.
he had a problem with the controller which I have sorted out by calibrating the 2 ph sensors, a redox sensor,conductivity sensor.Ok the thing is I dont know how to setup the co2.At the moment one ph sensor is in the sump and reads 8.16,the other is screwed into a reactor and is reading 6.4.
On the controller when you go into the parametres you can switch on a piece of equipment using a plug bar connected to it,in the ph settings you can setup the co2 to be switched on,but i dont know what parameters to inputor when the co2 should be used,i cant remember the make of controller,Can anyone help please????

It depends on what media he will be using in the calcium reactor. Some dissolve at 6.5 pH and some need to go as low as 6.2 pH.
These articles may help.
