Fluval 206 orings

Does anyone no how long the life span of these orings are?
Ive had a new one in for around 9 months with a filter media clean of around every other month.
I rubbed some none toxic food grade silicone grease on it when i first installed it too. Ive now started to get a leak. Is there anything i can do to fix this or is it a case of buying new ones every9 months?

Also do the canister clips wear in. Ive noticed, mine do cl9se but it seems they are not that tight. Do these have to be replaced every so often too?

Thanks for your time
