    I had a new water pressure regulator installed to replace a failed one. 2
    of the flusmasters in the second floor of my house stopped working. That is
    they work but it takes about an hour to fill the tanks.

    Before the pressure regulator was in stalled I had 120 psi. The new
    installation brought the pressure down to 60psi. Could the flushmasters
    have been damaged by the high pressure and do they need to be replaced?

    The faucets for the adjoining sinks and tubs work. Any help would be
    appreciated. Thanks

    It's probably just some rust caught under the diaphram. Shut off the
    stop, take the top off the ballcock, put a rag over the exposed hole, and
    slowly turn on the water in an effort to clear things out. Replace the
    black rubber diaphram while you're at it.
