I've been down the same road as you.
You may want to try org-habits and set the variable:
1. customize org-modules, enable 'org-habit'
2. Read org-habit docu
( A habit has a property :STYLE: habit )
Now these repeating tasks will only show once in the agenda.
One thing to note, if you use notifications for scheduled tasks, they don't
work with org-habbit's 'range' like +3d/5d. But if you don't care about notifications, you should be good.
Please feel free to ask me questions about this.

Subject: [O] How to exclude completed daily tasks from the agenda view
I have a number of TODO items that should be done *every day*. I do not
use Org-mode for them, since in the two-week agenda they tend to clutter
all days, not only today; if I complete such task, I want it not to be
visible in the agenda /at all/.
Is there a way to overcome this? One way would be to gather these tasks
in a subtree, give it a special tag (or preferably, a category), and
define a custom agenda view /excluding/ this particular tag/category.
Is that possible? I tried this
'(("X" agenda "-mytag")))
but it didn't work as expected. I also saw somewhere the
`org-agenda-skip-function' variable; would this be a good way? If yes,
how to use it? Do I get it correctly that it is a parameterless
function, called with point at some entry? Also, I saw the
`org-agenda-skip-regexp' variable; maybe this is the way to go? Or
maybe I should put `org-agenda-skip-if' into `org-agenda-skip-function'?
