To protect or not protect...

I read several of these posts to get information regarding staining/protecting a deck. My deck is 1 year old and receives a lot of Chicago sun as it faces West. The lumber is PT. I plan on living in this home for another 1 to 2 years. MUST I protect my deck or is the fact that it is PT lumber sufficient enough for some time?

My understanding is that the PT will last 10-15 years untreated, although it will weather to a grey color. The stained/treated deck may look better come selling time, but I don't think you'll have to worry about the deck falling apart.
