This seems similar to @NaeemShaikh's answer but its all I can think of.

Is it

Wash (cleaning/wave action/rainstorms)

My first teapot should be done everyday
My second teapot is every 0.5 to 10 seconds
My third teapot is every year

Cleaning should be done daily
The washing action of waves is periodic, though I think the range is higher than given
Storms can be seasonal

My first teapot is more and more done by machines
My second teapot is more or less not changing
My third teapot is changing rapidly

Cleaning cars, dishes, etc are done quite commonly by machines
the waves lap up against the shore, beating their gentle rhythm throughout time
Rain/storms/etc patterns change constantly

My first teapot affects humans, cars and dishes
My second teapot affects ships
My third teapot affects nations

yes, cleaning humans, cars and dishes and other things is common
the wash of the waves does affect ships
Storms/Monsoons/etc do affect nations

Hidden hint

You clean with water
the wash of waves is water
Storms can be hail or snow...er.. which is water. not sure here.

  • $\begingroup$ It's right: second teapot is wash : some kind of wave hitting the ship. third teapot is (to) wash away, in the right context of rain/monsoon/flood - great Job, i think i was just explaining too confusing for anybody here $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 28 '18 at 7:38

I can only relate this word with your 1st and 3rd teapot.

Is it:

Shower

First Hint:

My first teapot should be done everyday - Bath, Cleaning (Shower)
My third teapot is every year - Monsoon(Rain, shower) - Once a year

Second Hint:

My first teapot is more and more done by machines - Auto car wash, Automatic shower
My third teapot is changing rapidly - Rainfall in many areas of the world is changing rapidly due to global warming

Third Hint:

My first teapot affects humans, cars and dishes - like washing, bathing
My third teapot affects nations - Heavy/Low rainfall

Final Hint:

My first teapot is a task with water - Shower, Bath, Cleaning
My third teapot doesn't have to be water - Snow, Water

  • $\begingroup$ That's not the word I'm searching for. But it comes pretty close :) Nice to see you again :D. When do you make your own riddle? The third teapot affects also the mind $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 27 '18 at 10:45

Once again, I'm sure (know) I'm wrong, but are you:

Wave (greeting/water wave/political fluctuate causing "chaos") - I'm pretty sure someone has already used this...

First Hint

You should greet people every day
Seems more or less like the time between waves breaking in my experience (0.5s is too fast though...
In the US, there are elections every two years, but maybe somewhere else it's yearly?

Second Hint:

More human-like robots!!!!
Ocean waves are pretty constant
This is sort of the definition of my third teapot

Third Hint:

You can greet humans, hail taxis, and....... I guess you can wave at dishes, but why?
Waves affect ships - from seasickness for passengers to capsizing
Political chaos/change affects nations

Final Hint:

..... umm..... 60% of your body is water, so you are waving water...?
By definition, this wave is water
Political chaos doesn't have to involve water :P

  • $\begingroup$ It's not the right word, and I was the one making the teapot with wave as solution. As a tip my word is verb when you think normally of it / the most used teapot of this word is a verb $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 27 '18 at 11:32
  • $\begingroup$ @Jannis I thought it was you (but didn't want to go back through to confirm lol). Hmm... I'll rethink it! $\endgroup$ – eye_am_groot Sep 27 '18 at 11:33
  • $\begingroup$ WHO WAS ME!? / stop stalking me :P, where was I ? $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 27 '18 at 11:37
