Can anyone let me know if I've made a mistake

I'm currently using a co2 scrubber on my skimmer
I'm also recirculating the co2 scrubber from the skimmer cup
This creates a bit of moisture in the scrubber housing and then this gets sucked into the skimmer air intake silencer

I was emptying the liquid from the skimmer silencer and ended up spilling it into the sump
I have noticed any bad effect on the tank it was only a small amount of liquid bit am unsure of what the contents of said liquid is

Any advice would be appreciated

Thank you.
a raise in pH would be a good thing at the moment just not the way I intended to try and raise it

Was only a small amount Just wanted to make sure it was safe

I do have a bag of carbon in 24/7
It's due to be changed.
The tank is about 200 ISH gallons so I'm hoping if any adverse effects are caused by the soda lime it will be minimal with the amount I split compared to the tank volume

Alkalinity is up by 0.1-0.2 dkh but that may also be the tolerance in the test
pH hasn't been effected but saying that running the co2 scrubber also doesn't seem to effect the pH level
I've changed the carbon and am due a water change today also
