It would be helpful to know what the faucet brand is, but the screw in question may not be allen type.

You give no clue to what this drain hole is in, so difficult to answer.

Plumbing | Answered Yesterday

Take the handle back off and tighten the ring (or nut) that holds the ball and handle shaft in place, then reinstall the handle.

In my case the rotating part of the faucet was connected with a hex nut. Removing the hex nut then gave me easier access to the part of the faucet where the hose was stuck. I bent a wire hanger, jammed it in and pushed the hose back out where it was supposed to be.

You need to replace the handle. Most single-flush toilets have a handle that covers a plastic piece that includes a stem that goes through the bowl. The stem is functions as a bolt held by a plastic nut on the inside of the bowl. When the handle falls off, that stem has broken. If the bowl lid is accessible, you can remove the lid and use the chain to flush the toilet. Dual flush toilets also have a plastic stem or tube that goes through the bowl.

Depending on your toilet, a universal toilet lever replacement may work. These are available at most hardware stores for under $10. For some brands, you may need a brand-specific lever. In a few cases, the part may not be available at hardware centers but is available through plumbing suppliers, plumbers or the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

(Note: the nut inside the toilet bowl uses a left-handed thread. This is the only case in plumbing where it's lefty to tighten and righty to loosen.)

Could be a bad bearing...but keep in mind, electric motors are not all created equally. If the shaft is bent even slightly, it will still work fine but will be noisier. Some bearings are looser than others, making it noisier. Even the way the pump is mounted can cause vibration therefore making it noisier. There are many things to take into consideration.

Not sure if you fixed this yet, but I know that this faucet has a flow control option on it that you might want to adjust.

Your focus indicates a sewer issue and not a drain issue.
The first challenge is to determine which branch leg of the sewer is the issue and then assess where all your access ports are. Sometimes an outside access port has been covered over by dirt/mulch etc.
If you know where the blockage is ... then as mentioned by other contributors ... you will need a snake. They can be hand driven or motor driven. For great access to the blockage you may need to remove the closest toilet, since snaking through the lower S trap of the toilet really inhibits the snake's effectiveness. Depending on how your house is built ... the roof sewer vent pipes can be a good access point (and sometimes that is where the debris has gotten into your sewer if you have overhanging trees). I have had success with running a garden house up to the roof and down through the vent pipe. You need to have a second person watching by the the toilet to make sure it does not back flow on to the floor. You can get hose spray attachments which help propel the hose and add turbulence to break the blockage ... but I have never tried them.
If your blockage is recurring over the seasons ... and if you have a number of trees close to your sewer line outside then you can have tree root intrusion into the sewer. In that case you need a professional with a special snake that actually has cutting capability to remove the roots.
Attached are 3 photos ... manual snake, motor snake, hose spray nozzle
Good luck with your troubleshooting!

Sometimes you can remove a stuck cap by inserting a paring or pocket knife blade under the rim and gently tapping and twisting until it pops off. Be careful about getting too vigorous with a piece of cheap plastic!

piping should be below the frost line so it probably wont freeze overnight

Plumbing | Answered on Jan 09, 2019

Plumbing | Answered on Jan 08, 2019

Only if you don't mind having to replace the valve after you finish forcing it with pliers.
