I use both.  On brew day, I make some iodophor up.  I have a five gallon batch of Star San in a bucket that is used for non brew day (kegs, keg lines, etc.)
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

I almost do the same. Kegs and anything yeast related get iodophor, fermentors and other brewday gear gets starsan which I keep a bucket of. I will rinse and sanitize my empty fermentors with the iodophor when I am purging kegs as well.

Having read about iodophor staining plastic—does it stain Speidel fermenters?

Might.   I haven't had my Speidel very long.   But I'll happily stain it rather than have spoiled beer.

I've used it on plastic buckets for years, which I would guess are made of the same material.  Never had any staining.
