yes, I'm sure it could.

Open it and spray it down with lysol.

If you want to keep the pump clean once you have dissinfected it build a filtered box to keep the contams away from it permanently.


Just buy a plastic shoebox from a department store and a hepa filter for an upright vac. Look for the hepas that are flat and measure around 3 by 8inches or so. Lay the filter on the lid and trace its outline. Cut it out and lay the filter in and silicone it into place and let dry. While you wait cut a notch out of the top of the box so that the power cord for the pump will fit down into it. Drill or melt with a bolt the holes for the air tubing and run them through and connect to the clean pump inside the box. Finally put a bead of silicone around the top of the box and put the lid on. When it dries you have a nice hepa filtered box that will protect your mushies' vital airstream very well.

Good Luck!
MYKEY

Some pumps come with a little filter that they suck air through. I never had any probs. I guess it just depends how dirty your place is.
