Question about Home
Several times in the last year my toilet has overflowed when flushed with no solid waste and just a little paper. There appears to be no clog in the line as normal operation resumes after the overflow. Is it possible that the cheap fixture from home depot manufactured "off shore " is at fault?
Not really. I believe there is a clog in the trap. This happened to us last year. I took the toilet up and found a cloth in the trap ad a pencil. This fixed the problem. Now some traps are poorly designed and meet only minimum specs. Before taking it up, take a hose and force water down it wide open , this could blast out the obstruction.

for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve

Don't flush more water! Trash the toilet and replace it with a toilet that uses less water and flushes efficiently; practically every manufacturer makes a dual flush or eco model. Spend your money on a good toilet rather than paying for and wasting water every day.
