Except it's way easier to search for Water and oxygen than Chlorophyll.

Suppose it take 5 unit of time to confirm if there's oxygen
Then it take 5 unit of time to confirm if there's water vapor.

You can analyze 10-20 candidates instead of just one.

And like somebody else said, Chlorophyll is one candidate, in other conditions, another chemical could be used.
