AC drain line clogged

This AC drain line in my small downtown condo keeps getting clogged, Does anyone know which line is the primary drain and have any ideas how i can avoid having to repeat this once per year and how to avoid removing the rubber connectors? So far I havent been able to remove them.

The air handler is to the right of these lines. And this is in located in the ceiling.

The lower of the two is the primary drain. That looks like it may be the right line.

It's pretty hard for us to comment on the drain lines as we can't see them.
You need to follow them to locate possible clogged areas.

The big part on the left hand PVC line looks to be a union where it could be unscrewed to get it apart.
