I am getting about 1-2 seasons. I rinse and hang over a thick PVC pipe in the shade. 150-200 sessions per year definitely shortens the life. Thinking of getting a second suit for Summer-Fall.

Another big factor: How many years was the suit on the rack in the surf shop before you bought it. Some shops in an effort to have what looks like a full wetsuit section have inventory that takes years to turn over.
i might have bought into this....

it gets a fresh water rinse every time but...
am guilty of drying it on the backyard clothesline..
