Penis pumps results

Currently, the market offers hundreds of brands of different penis pumps intended to combat erectile dysfunction.

  3. The effect of their use is temporary;
  4. The risk of damaging the penis is huge;
  5. 90% of such pumps are not recommended by doctors;
  6. Most manufacturers of such pumps are no-name companies;

Clinical facts
Hydro-pumps are referred to as the new generation of penis enlargement devices. They are used in many medical institutions as the best recommendation for erectile dysfunction and rehabilitation after surgical penis enlargement.

That’s why you cannot just buy Bathmate and Penomet in pharmacies as a remedy for erectile dysfunction and penis enlargement.

You can receive a warranty of up to 12 months if you register on the website.
Comfortable to use
The new super soft comfort pads ensure an ideal contact with the skin. This makes the suction more comfortable and effective. The comfort pads are removable and cleanable.

The valve also allows maintaining the pressure for a longer period and decreasing it to make the pumping more comfortable for the user.

Do penis pumps work?

Understanding the principle of operation of such devices is crucial for everyone who wants to know how safe and effective pumping is. Hydro-pumps use water rather than air vacuum and cannot cause harm to the penis. A hydro-pump creates an erection using suction inside the tube. The vacuum draws blood into the erectile chambers, and they grow in size, which ensures the growth of the penis tissues.

Quick note
Using a hydro-pump regularly, you will be able to enlarge your penis quickly and considerably.

Water provides the effective distribution of pressure inside the tube, ensuring a great result without any discomfort or side effects. Such a pump makes the maximum use of the suction power to enlarge your penis without causing any inconvenience effectively.

Bathmate has several series of pumps and sizes. It’s important to understand the difference between pumps, and how to choose the most suitable one.

There are 3 series of pumps:

Bathmate SeriesHydromax X-SeriesHydromax Xtreme
Originals currently includes only the Hercules pump. Earlier, the Goliath was also on the series, but it’s been discontinued 
X-Series is represented by the Hydromax pumps.
They differ by both the size of the tube and the technology employed.

Let’s talk about the differences in greater detail:

The Hercules pump is the original Bathmate pump designed for men whose erect penis size does not exceed 7 inches. This is an inexpensive pump that comes at $110. The technology employed allows easily achieving the desired penis enlargement. If you are not willing to spend a lot, this pump is for you.

Pay attention to the size of the tube – it’s important to pick the size that fits your penis. Perform a careful measurement and then select the right size.

In addition to the original pump, Bathmate has many other options.


The Hydromax X-Series pumps include:

  1. X20,
  2. X30,
  3. X30 Wide Boy,
  4. X40.

Regarding production technology, these pumps are newer and 35% stronger than the previous one. The second advantage over the Original Series is the 360° view of the penis during use. This pump’s effect is more tangible and fast. The penis grows both in length and width.

Other advantages of this pump over the Hercules from the Original series is the comfort pads that improve the contact between the pump and penis.

Quick note
This pump uses the new technology called the Super Flow Latch Valve system. It allows filling the pump with water using only one hand.

The textured surface of the tube provides a better grip.

Last but not the least advantage over the Hercules is the fact this pump is suitable for men whose penis is under 5 inches. In this case, you need to choose the X20 size. If your penis is 5-7 inches in length, the X30 pump will suit you. The X30 Wild Boy pump is a separate model distinguished by a more intense impact on the penis length rather than its width.

Worth noting, the Bathmate technology is generally more focused on the intensive increase of the penis width. Men often additionally resort to jelqing for an enlargement regarding length. If you want to increase the length of your penis, it’s recommended that you purchase not only the X30 pump but also the X30 Wild Boy, the main purpose of which is ensuring a rapid growth of the penis length. As for X40, it’s intended for men whose penis size is 7-9 inches.

For men who’ve had prostate surgery, a regimen of Bathmate device usage is recommended – 15 minutes daily – to help increase the blood flow to the penis. It may take several weeks to work – WebMD. It’s covered on medicare, so you can trust this pump.

Studies suggest that about 50-80% of men are satisfied with the results of Bathmate Hydromax. As with any other treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) and penis enlargement, satisfaction rates may decrease with time – medicinenet.

These are direct quotes from reputable websites proving the effectiveness of the Bathmate pump, which has been officially tested on patients. None of the vacuum pumps received positive feedback from the doctors that administered the tests. Hydro-pumps are new-generation penis enlargement devices, and their effectiveness is clinically proven. Very soon, hydro penis pumping will become the standard in natural penis enlargement. With 1,000,000 buyers, Bathmate has already become the leader of this market. More and more clinical studies involving Bathmate pumps are conducted in official institutions across Europe and America.

Penis pumps work


Many inquire how to use this pump to the best possible effect and what tricks, hints, and tips experienced users can give. Such questions would be relevant if we were talking about the techniques of using vacuum pumps. Those devices allowed the user to adjust the pump’s power and control the strength of the erection.

Quick note
Fortunately, Bathmate pumps do not give the user an opportunity to control the pressure. The pre-set ideal balance of pressure is the main factor in ensuring the penis growth and preventing damages.

Bathmate comes with a clear pumping instruction, which you need to follow for a guaranteed result. To avoid discomfort and to avoid the risks of damaging the penis, Bathmate has developed its unique technology that controls the suction intensity and the pressure in the tube with water. Moreover, 15 minutes of pumping is sufficient for the penis to receives the pressure necessary for growth. Let’s once again review how to use this pump:

How to use water-based pumps
  1. Move the valve to the center position.
  2. Select the suitable pad size and attach it to the tube.
  3. Turn the device so that you see the penis measurement scale on the tube, which will allow you to look at your progress.
  4. Before using the pump, take a shower and relax. This procedure is called warming.
  5. Start pumping. You can take breaks of 3-5 minutes. The total pumping time does not have to exceed 15 minutes per day.

This technique guarantees your penis will demonstrate growth in both length and width. The water inside the tube ensures the growth occurs in a balanced manner.

Did you know?
Also, water mitigates microtraumas and incites the stretching of the penis tissues.

What’s the Difference Between Bathmate and Penomet?

Despite the similar principles of operation and effectiveness, Bathmate and Penomet employ different technologies, either of which is patented and cannot be duplicated. Let’s review the distinctive features of both pumps.

The Penomet pump is more massive; It can accommodate a penis that is up to 9 inches long and up to 2.49 inches wide.
This device is more suitable for beginners, as it’s highly comfortable and easy to use. In addition, it can hold a larger volume of water: 30 oz, while the largest Bathmate (X40) holds only 23 oz.
Even the largest version of the Bathmate pump cannot accommodate a penis that is longer than 8.5 inches and wider than 2.2 inches.
This is especially uncomfortable if your penis has grown larger and no longer fits into the Bathmate pump comfortably.
Bathmate comes with only one gaiter.
The design of this pump simply does not allow the installation of other gaiters. On the other hand, you will select a pump to suit your penis size, with the most comfortable and effective gaiter. You will likely not need a different one.
Penomet pump comes with as many as 5 removable and replaceable gaiters.
Although they do not have the function of maximum comfort as in Bathmate. The variety of gaiters provides more opportunities for efficient use of the pump, but if comfort is your first consideration, we recommend Bathmate.
Perhaps the most important function available in hydro-pumps is the opportunity to retain the water during use.
This was successfully implemented in the new Bathmate Hydromax pump, while the earlier models Goliath and Hercules lack such a function. By the way, Penomet does not have it either. The retention of water in the pump helps to maintain balance and load of the pressure, which makes the pumping more effective and safer. In this regard, Bathmate Hydromax is the impeccable leader.

 Summarizing the comparative analysis, it’s safe to say Bathmate introduces major innovations in the Hydromax pump. The Penomet production technology everything is not as good and operative. If you are after innovations and want to use the most modern pump for penis enlargement, opt for Bathmate. Yes, it can be a little more expensive than Penomet, but you invest in the result and comfort. 

How to Buy Bathmate and Penomet?

It’s crucial to know what official stores sell original pumps, as many unofficial websites are using the brand names.

Buying penis pumps in large online stores, such as Amazon, GNC, Walmart, eBay, Aliexpress, etc., is not recommended.

You will not be able to receive direct user support and an official warranty or to buy original accessories. The official websites provide everything for a comfortable and quick purchase of both the main devices and related accessories. You can find a great variety of them on the websites of official online stores.
