Water maker high pressure pump oil - Rainman

Our Rainman watermaker high pressure pump is supposed to have 30 weight non detergent “general purpose 100 pump oil”.

Is there a substitute oil that is safe to use in the high pressure pump?

Sorry for bumping an old thread. I use oils from these two brands: Mi-T-M and CAT Pumps. I do not know about the safety of such oils but they work excellent with my Karcher pressure washer.
