Wood Treatment Advice

Hello everyone. Am back in our house and busy doing some maintenance jobs. We have three wooden framed windows which face our swimming pool - and due south. I have lightly sanded them and restained them every year with Silvanol in Teak but it just doensn't seem to be doing the job. They are only 7 years old but are looking in very bad shape this spring.

I wonder if the fact they get some cholrinated water splashed on them doesn't help. Should I buy a treatment more suited for boat decking ? Or are there much more serious wood treatments and Silvanol is just stain ? Does anyone have any bright ideas as they are looking very dry and sad (bit like me after winter in England !!)

Many thanks, Emma.
