Solved!

So I went out to change the water filter and discovered my replacement was not the correct filter. Since the old one was really dirty I put the housing back together without the filter. I have an inline filter hooked up temporarily.

This did not fix the pressure problem so I shut the water off again and checked the mesh filters in the toilets valves. They were completely full. We just spent a month at a relative's house where they use salt to remove the minerals in their well water. The derbies I removed from the valves was white and felt gritty like salt or sand. They are clean and functioning properly now.

Thanks again! I don't know what I'd do if you weren't here to answer my crazy questions.

Great news.
While you are at it I would also remove and clean all the sink aerators. They are probably clogged also

Replace your hot water anode. That is the source of the grit. When you remove it you will see what i mean.

Is there also a filter or screen inline for the shower? Not looking for one in the nozzle but further inline. We've cleaned all the others but not sure how to go about shower.

I think the shower has a filter where the hose leaves the valves in the shower or just where the hose attaches to the shower head. Just can't remember where I saw it. Anyway it's easy to check.

I experienced the same problem of reduced water pressure in the toilet. Looking behind the flush valve I found that FR connected it to the HOT water line and not the cold! Therefore, all the junk from the water heater gets trapped by the little screen within the flush valve. Can't remove the screen and almost impossible to get inside to clean it without removing the whole valve or toilet. I used a q tip to pull the gunk out. Why did FR not use the cold water line? Solution? I went to the hardware store and bought plastic connectors and a screen to place between the flush valve and the water line . Now I can remove and clean the new screen periodically.

Thanks again!
If your shower and faucets flow properly, changing the water filter will not fix the problem with the toilets.

My toilet valve (the one Iggy posted a picture of) gets gunked up. It's fairly easy to remove and clean.

Easy to remove and clean - unless you have a Georgetown 270! Then you have to remove the entire toilet to get to the back of the valve. But it did fix the problem. I'm thinking the shower screen is next.
