German term or phrase: Dosierung von "pH minus"
Die eingesetzten zwei großen Wasserkreisläufe wurden von insgesamt 6 Dosierpumpen und 4 Reglern in Schuss gehalten. pH-Regler hielten den pH-Wert konstant, über die Dosierung von "ph minus". This is describing the technology behind an artifical waterfall used at an an exhibition on water treatment. I don't understand the last part "über die Dosierung ..."

Explanation:
pH-Minus and pH-Plus are generic names used for chemicals used to respectively decrease or increase the pH value of water, when they are inadequate. Such names are identical in English and German.
This is used for example in aquarium where the pH tends to go up (become alkaline) permanently because of the plants activities.
In such a case, the delivery of "pH-Minus" controlled by a pH measuring system can effectively maintain the pH value at the desired value
