The vented loop is in the raw water injection line before it goes into the exhaust elbow, like the Yanmar diagram below. As it says an anti-siphon or vented loop. Some install a vented loop with a small hose from the top into the cockpit well as it will not clog. And a bit of water spitting out is a comforting thing to see.
