I use a rental pump. I couldn't afford the big medela and my baby was not able to nurse at all.
If it is a good pump you can get new pieces to replace the pieces that the milk goes through. People do that all the time with the big expensive pumps. If it is a small cheap pump, you cans till use it. Just boil all the parts that come in contact with the milk.

You should replace anything your milk will touch. Higher quality pumps offer these parts seperately from the machine.

Like PP said you can sterilize all the parts, which is what you do with a new one anyway. You can also rent them, in fact if you can't afford a good one, renting is an excellent option. I'm going to donate mine when I'm done with nursing.
