I have water pressure all over the house that is fine, all of a sudden my toliets (one upstairs, one in the basement) has no water pressure. when they flush, it fills up with a trickle of water and does not flush well.

Shut off the water supply by the toilet ,disassemble the flush valve and remove the sediment or replace the defective part inside the ball *****.

You may have to place a pot over the ball ***** opening open the valve for a short burst of water to make sure you have flow up to this point. BE CAREFUL not to flood the place

thank you for all your help regarding the toliet pressure, but I know this will sound real crazy, just as i was getting ready to take the flush valve apart, it began to work and fill the toliet like it should, at the time the washer was running, when the washer completed spinning, i flushed the toliet and it was back to the same old trickle of water, I ran the washer again to see if there was a connect and sure enough while the washer was running the overflow pipe began to run and the toliet began to fill as it should. The last time i washed i overfilled the washer and i heard it slamming back and forth on the spin cycle right after that the toliets did not work properly. I know this seems crazy but this is what is happening. i tried to check the pipes but i cannot find anything loose.
