maintaining ph levels with a calcium reactor

im contemplating on getting a calcium reactor, and looking to understand how to maintain the ph levels. how do you guys keep the ph level constant?

Some details about my tank if it helps:
29 gallon SW
1 cpr hob refugium
20 gallon tank filled with live rock for more bio filtration and for increase bio load.

The PH levels in the tank or the PH levels in the reactor? You use CO2 to lower the PH in the reactor.. just wondering if I understood the question thats all..

sorry about that, it would be the ph levels in the reactor. from what i know, the reactor needs 6.+ ph and that calc reactors need to be set up with CO2.

It souldnt be a problem with presurized CO2.. just turn the valve untill you get the desired PH.. Im guessing you could use a PH controller but that would be an extra 80 bucks at best..
