We have very hard well water with a lot of iron in it. There is a softener and chlorine pump installed on the well which helps a lot with mineral buildup, but this has not always been the case.

The places that I have the most trouble with mineral buildup are the toilets and the shower grout. I've gotten into the habit of swishing the toilets out with baking soda or Bar Keepers Friend at least every other day. They stay clean, but I still get mineral buildup above where the water sits. The grout will eventually turn a yellowish red. I can scrub with a toothbrush+baking soda+hydrogen peroxide combo and it will come off but this is a slow and spoon-intensive activity I rarely have the time/energy for.

I'm wondering if anyone in a similar situation has found something that works for them? I am so tired of looking at my scuzzy shower that really IS clean yet isn't.
