Sure...veggie oil or mineral oil once a month helps keep the parts of the pump lubricated and working well. We usually did our monthly vinegar de-scaling and then followed it with the mineral oil. Won't do much good for the Y valves though. The vinegar may be more helpful in that scale is often the cause for broken handles. Marelon Y valves are a distinct improvement on cheaper plastic ones I've found.
