air lock loop

I have a loop from the head that goes behind all of the panels and comes down again.
Does anyone have any idea where the hose goes on a pearson 530 in the aft head.

The head is not pumbing out the water. The bowl almost overflows. I disconnected the hose at the y valve and it still dosen't come out. I put a fish tape in from both directions and it seems to stop at the top of the airlock loop which I assume is there.

How much pressure is supposed to come out of a raritan electric head?
Any ideas would be helpful.

that is an anti syphon loop. You should be able to take it off the hose to check if it is blocked.

FYI; This would be better asked in gear and maintenance

are the hoses and ventedd-loop fitting partially blocked with scale and mineral build up? Mine were 2/3 blocked.
