I understand vent is quite important for proper flushing of toilet.
Without vent, toilet has problems flushing. In the U.S., you can see
vent pipes coming out of roof. Those are shingle roofs. If roof is built
with terra cotta tiles, I don't think vent pipes will go through tiles.
What is done in this case about vent pipe?
Here in Burma, expensive houses all have terra cotta tiles. I don't see
one single pipe coming out of any roof. I wonder if the toilets in the
house just don't have vent.

Thanks to all those who replied to my question.
There is one thing I forgot to mention. All the toilets here are
connected to septic tank, not sewage system. Does that make a difference

The only vent is the main stack, no vents at any fixture. Haven't had a vent related problem in the 35 years I've lived here.
Not recommending it, just telling it like it is.

Maybe you can ask the owners and see what they say. Or if you see one
being built, asl the builders. Of if you see a plumber, ask him. Or if
you don't see a plumber, call one. If you call 45 minutes before
quitting time, and it's a plumber who has other guys out there doing the
work, or if he comes back to the office at the end of the day and he
finished early, or if his office is in his home, or if he lists a cell
phone and he has time to talk, 45 or 30 minutes before closing is a good
time. I called a surveyor's office once to ask a business quesiton, but
he ended up talking to me and explaining the whole surveying business,
until 5 came and it was time to go home. You have to do it right
though to get people to talk. It takes some practice. Details on
