I have tnis controler and I am trying to figure out it's setting?
It has a set point which I have set to around 7. There is also a switch that reads above and bellow. The question I have is do I want the switch on above or below?

Depends when you want the controller to provide power to your solenoid (which in turn, opens/closes the flow of CO2).

Since you have your pH setpoint at 7, then the question becomes:

"Controller on when pH is ABOVE/BELOW pH of 7"

More than likely, you will want it the CO2 to be on when your pH goes above 7 (and then the controller will turn off once it drops below 7).

The "below" setting is likely for those that are injecting something like Kalkwasser.
