You will be doing it every 2 years, and it depends on the condition and age of the deck.
I haven’t had good luck with the “waterproof” types.
A good solid stain, applied correctly, will serve you well.

It’s a bigger job than you may think, and weather and curing time are very important. ..as well as prep work like cleaning,sanding and repair.
