You got that backwards. They are normally closed and the controller turns
the solenoid on (open) when the pH gets above the set point, and turns off
(closes the solenoid) when it gets below the set point.

If it turned on when it got below a set point, it would turn the co2 on,
thus lowering it more, then it would never turn off.
