I've discovered a way to "recondition" the rubber part of this pump. 
The problem was that the rubber cup was not making a seal against the 
sides of the pump wall.  I took the cup out and turned it inside out for 
an hour.  After setting it right again and reinstalling, the pump works. 
  We'll see how long that does the trick.
