Is the water pressure always slow or fast for a second right when you turn it on and then slows down? If it's fast right at first then there is buildup in the piping somewhere - - valves etc like the others mentioned.

How old is the house? When you flush the tank, does it seem to have a lot of pressure or is it also slow?

From the looks of those valves, they have been leaking for some time. From the amount of efflorescence on the outside, the inside must be nearly shut down. All of them should be replaced as soon as possible. Sounds like you have a pinhole of flow left.

By the way, Thanks Joe. You are correct, Globe Valve.
