Soda/Ice Drain Line Clogs

Hi Everyone,
 
I have a Soda dispenser with the ice bins underneath, drains are all connected below the stand. The drain line gets plugged up frequently, and its a real pain to get it unclogged. Does anyone know how to get these darn things from clogging so quickly?
 
I dump hot water down all the drains often thinking that it would melt the syrup concentrate, but someone told me that you have to dump bleach water down the drain as its a bacteria growing from the syrup.
 
Any ideas?

    If the drains are freezing, try putting a little of the "pink" RV anti freeze in the drains. You can get it in the RV section of Wal-Mart/K-Mart (and many other places). It is safe for drain lines and septic systems.

    lornaschinske,
                                  i don't think that they are freezing, as this goo all comes out from the lines
    when we pressurize them, i would love to find something to pour down them that would keep them clear, but not drain cleaner....lol
