Whats the process for greasing or lubing the pump? Mine is getting noisy.

I'd try cleaning the shaft with CLR or Lime Away first. If that doesn't work, I am sure that graphite would probably be a good lubricant for it.

a shot with some dry silicon should do the trick.

My pump was extremely loud and difficult to operate after 8 inflates. I took it apart to find that it was filled with dirt and grime -- not sure how that happened. I cleaned the head of the shaft and the inside of the barrel, then added some silicone grease to the shaft head. It's like new again.
