Marc Schindler:

Don't quote me on that -- I'm going from memory and I 
actually went and looked at our nearest toilet, but it doesn't 
say what the capacity is.

... Then it says "W / L 5 / 8"  I rather suspect that means 5 US 
gallons but I don't know what the 8 would mean. 

...Now you got me, er, goin'. I went and looked at all 3 toilets, 
and the one in our main upstairs bathroom has the most 
legible inscription. It reads:

7 NOV 1986
3783

CSA "Standard" [American Standard's logo]
4083 TANK
MADE IN MEXICO
T85
W/L 5/8 BELOW
OVERFLOW TOP

Any plumbers out there who can read toiletese? ;-)

Well I'll be a clogged sewer pipe.  I never thought I would 
see the day when the all-knowing Marc wouldn't come up 
with the answer, especially when it was staring right at him.  
What a puzzlement.  And speaking of puzzles ...

Take these last two lines from the inside of your tank:

W/L 5/8 BELOW
OVERFLOW TOP

and place them together like this:

W/L 5/8 BELOW OVERFLOW TOP

Then, make sure that the float in the tank is adjusted so 
that the water stops when the water level is 5/8 of an inch 
(American inches, not Imperial ones [grin]) from the top 
of the overflow pipe in the tank.

This will keep the toilet from continually running with water 
going down the overflow pipe, instead of shutting off as it 
should when the tank is full.

Your upstairs bathroom toilet was made 16 years ago, BTW.
