My sister handed down to me her Medella breast pump. It's a really nice electrical double pump which she paid a good amount for.
I've heard that it isnt advised to use other people's breast pumps but my question is why?
Is it because of passing on communicable diseases? If so, I know for a fact that my sister is the only one who used this pump and she doesn't have any diseases.

I agree with halfpint. The Medela pumps all use membrane tubing so milk doesn't come into contact with the parts of the actual pump so the risk of cross contamination is very, very, very, very low. There's nothing wrong with using your sisters pump.
