Dripping into the pan is unusual, unless it's arranged so that the overflow
goes into the pan, which is also unusual, but not unknown. Is this a close
coupled type, or is there a pipe from cistern to pan? And is the water level
correct in the cistern, or is it overfilling?
Most toilet cisterns now have internal overflows into the pan. It
sounds like its overflowing. Lower the water level or raise the
overflow as appropriate - correct water level should be marked inside
If its not that, the seal between the cistern & pan is failing.
