How often does an O ring on an underwater camera housing need to be replaced if

How often does an O ring on an underwater camera housing need to be replaced if it's only used for rain and snow?

My manual says every year. Is this right for such light usage?

Another question on O rings: My underwater housing for the X1 has just been discontinued by Olympus.

Anyone have an idea how long the rings will be available from Olympus?

I could stock up, but does an unused o ring deteriorate? If so, how long is it good for?

If they can be bought anywhere else, how good are they?
