Q. "What are anchor cables used for?"
A. The drain cleaning cable is anchored inside the drum; this keeps it attached so it doesn't just go down the drain that's being cleaned. Of course this means that some of the cable remains in the drum, which means you can't have the full reach of the stated cable length. The anchor cables offered on this page are basically five foot extensions designed to anchor the standard cable inside the drum, thereby allowing the full length of the standard cable to be accessible for drain cleaning.
