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
CSA "Standard" [American Standard's logo]
MADE IN MEXICO
W/L 5/8 BELOW
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
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.
