Get your water tested, it Likely needs to be treated to get rid of the minerals so it does not cause these issues.

High calcium build-up. But the question I have is how long does it take to get this way between clean up? Hard water is the culprit, but short of getting a water softener, daily clean ups will solve the problem. After every shower we squeegee the walls and wipe down all the fixtures.

Lime-A-Away, CLR or similar. Both available at almost any store.
You should also squeegee the the walls. The more moisture you remove the better. I hope you also run the exhaust fan before, during and after using he shower or bath.
