The Bathmate Hydromax is a manual (non-electric) water-based penis pump that can be used in the shower or bath.
These pumps are premium-quality devices built to last several years. The only alternative featuring equal quality is the Penomet pump.
There are 3 different Bathmate pump versions. Each version comes in different sizes. The Hydromax and HydroXtreme series pumps are newer and more advanced than the original Bathmate hydro pump line.
Bathmate offers free international shipping for any package. Prices above are in $USD.
The old Bathmate model names are listed above in brackets. The naming was updated by the manufacturer in 2018 to have the pump number correlate with the maximum penis size (in inches) that would fit inside.
There are several shops and retailers that sell Bathmate pumps. We recommend that you buy directly from the manufacturer.
For the newer models, visit the Official Website (newly redesigned) based in the USA.
Also, be careful of fake resellers and cheaper duplicates.
*Free shipping, 60 days money-back, and extended 3-year warranty will be included on the website above.

Note: we opened a General Q&A section at the bottom of this page because we noticed many questions were submitted as reviews. We frequently monitor that section to help you.
I tried several pumps, and I can say that this is the best. Quality and results are great. Would recommend getting the stronger version though...
We purchased a hydro pump from each of the 3 series to provide a complete review. We then had several volunteers documenting their results over 18 months of use.
Penis pumps are a very effective and fun way to increase your penis length and especially girth.
Traditional extenders can cause irritation and be uncomfortable over time. Pumps, on the other hand, always feel great and give solid results over time.
The penis pump works by creating a vacuum that expands the skin and tissue of your penis. This expansion is very natural since it is similar to erections, which happen all the time. As the tissue, skin, and muscles expand, new cells will be created to fill in the gaps.
With regular use and good recovery time between sessions (12 to 36 hours or several rest days in between), the tissue of the penis will permanently expand.
The pump stretches your penis and expands the penile veins. Therefore, your blood flow increases. With increased blood flow you will intensify your orgasm and increase your sexual stamina allowing you to last longer in bed. 
Air pumps and traditional extenders can be potentially dangerous. The Bathmate is a water based pump and is very safe. I never had problems with this device even with aggressive use. Some users, however, reported minor injuries.
The original Hydro7 (previously known as Hercules) and Goliath were released back in 2009. It has been proven to be very effective and got a lot of media buzz.
This popularity encouraged the emergence of many competing models. Those are cheap and easily breakable rip-offs that come from resellers on Amazon, Alibaba, and eBay.
Bathmate remains the most popular hydro-pump. Almost every online search for penis pumps will bring it up.
In late 2013, Bathmate introduced two new series of their pumps – the Hydromax Series and the HydroXtreme Series. The new hydro pumps offer:
In 2018, Bathmate updated its model names. Strangely, they are gradually phasing out the Bathmate brand from their website and switching to Hydromax. They also labeled their pumps more clearly to indicate the pump length in inches. However, the real sizing is still a bit different.
Our recommendation: if you have the funds, getting the newer Hydromax Series is an absolute must. The Hydro7 is still a very nice pump, but it is weaker and the latch is a bit outdated.
If you choose to commit to this, you might as well spend the few extra dollars to get a stronger device that is more comfortable.
The Xtreme Series with the hand pump is a very nice addition for those seeking the ultimate pressure adjustment. All the accessories are also included with that version (which would cost $110 as an add-on to other pumps). However, note that will not get you better results compared to the Hydromax Series since the gaiters used are the same.
View our complete Bathmate size guide for more details.
Pick the size of the hydro pump depending on your erect penis size (6 inches or more) but keep in mind future expandability.
The new Hydromax5 (X20) is not recommended for anyone with a size of over 4.5 inches since it would not have much room for growth.
Note that the HydroXtreme11 (X50) pump is the largest supporting more than 9 inches.
Before buying, check the special promotions page on this sales page (for potential deals and discounts).
You will also qualify for the 60-day money back guarantee, free shipping, and warranty.
The official website above provides an additional discount with the bundle upgrade (shower strap, towel, case, cleaning kit, lube, and more).
You are also qualified for the 60-day money-back guarantee (if you wish to use it) and the 12-month warranty (may be extended to 36 months).
Note: the warranty is provided by the Bathmate manufacturer, not by AHCAF.
You can purchase Bathmate accessories from the main website as well. Preferably together with your pump. The suggested package upgrade includes:
As you can see from the contents, nothing in this addon package is mandatory. Those are additional bonuses that make pumping a bit more convenient, but nothing that you cannot purchase at a local convenience store.
Additionally, we recommend you try the Bathmate Max Out Jelqing Serum. If you are serious about your penis enlargement exercises, you should do a jelqing session after pumping. With the Max Out cream, your penis will recover faster and will get additional nutrients.
Read our Top Penis Pumps page to see the 3 best choices (Bathmate is #2).
An alternative we recommend is the Penomet pump (read a review here).
Penomet features replaceable gaiters – meaning you have more flexibility with different pressure strengths and future upgrade potential.
Following positive testimonials, we encourage you to consider this alternative as well. We recently updated our detailed head-to-head comparison between the two pumps: read the Bathmate vs. Penomet comparison.
Many other alternatives are built with cheaper materials and offer lower quality. Remember that a pump must maintain top-notch pressure; otherwise, it is useless.

Most recent customer reviews were posted above.
I purchased the Hydromax X30 thinking the product would be superior to others on the market due to the high cost and reviews I read. This is a piece of junk and does not work well at all. I plan to return this ASAP for a refund! My advice, don’t waste your time or hard earned money on this scam.
My current routine: 4-5 days a week, session of 5 sets of 5 minutes with a 2-minute break in between sets (around 30 minutes total). This routine is the best for me, and I'll explain why. The gains below are rounded down (because I'm using tailor tape and not being accurate). I am not going to be guessing what 1/10th of an inch I am at:
-Permanent girth gain -> 0.50" (more notable - better erections)
-12 to 24 hours girth gain -> 0.20"
-4 to 6 hours girth gain -> 0.28"
-1 to 2 hours girth gain -> 0.35"
-Permanent length gain: 0.45" (similar to girth, improved EQ)
Those are not the squishy fluid size increases. I am completely rock hard at all of the above numbers. I know that some see these results as underwhelming, but for a skinny guy like myself, these gains are very noticeable. Additionally, not that I am not pressing the pump to its maximum potential.
Overall, I am happy with the BM X40, and I believe that it's absolutely worth the purchase if you are willing to be patient. If I am able to add 0.2" to my girth gains in the next couple of weeks, there will be no question that this pump works and is a godsend for men that have a below-average size in girth.
Don't waste your money. Extremely inconvenient, frustrating and a low-pressure gimmick. Your standard air pump (or even Penomet) has better suction, is far more user-friendly and much better value for money. Anyone that disagrees is either working for Bathmate or never used any pump before or is totally sucked into the marketing and unfounded bro science behind it.
I used this for 3 1/2 months, consistently. IT DOES NOT WORK! Stop using this if you've just started, or don't buy it. It DOES make your penis larger for about 6 hours. And I did make gains IN THE PUMP. But no permanent gains. I used it religiously: 4,5,6 days per week. 3 five minute sessions. No permanent change to my penis size. I started at 6 1/4 length, and 4 7/8 girth, and I'm still at those measurements. I started the first week of December 2017, and I'm deciding to call it quits (it's March 17, 2018). I would strongly recommend passing on this. Maybe there really is a way to grow your penis, but this isn't it. Not for me, anyway.
I reviewed this product in September 2017 (posted on this page) after using it two times a week for two months. I am now at the 6-month milepost. I kept using it two times a week. Here are my results so far (total increases since starting use of Bathmate X50 two times per week):
-Increase in BPEL 15% (bone-pressed erected length)
-Increase in EG mid-shaft 18% (erected girth)
-Increase in EG head 13% (erected girth)
-Increase in FG 19% (flaccid girth)
-Increase in BPFL 17% (bone-pressed flaccid length)
Simply put: it doesn't change anything. It only makes your penis temporarily fatter when flaccid, but that's useless because you want to get gains for the erected length. And, I did injure myself. It caused some bruises, so I stopped using it.
The device leaks air. I shaved. Applied Vaseline. Still leaks. Customer support does nothing. Buyer beware!! Very expensive to be "buy as is".
I just want to start off by saying that this is a real 4-month review of the Hydro pump I recently bought. In all honesty, I would buy this pump again because it has made quite the difference in my sex life and I couldn't be happier. I've tried stretchers before but never really committed because you have to wear them for hours on end to get results and it just never fit into my schedule. With the pump, I can do it at night for 30 minutes and be done with it in about the same time that it takes to watch an episode of American Dad on Netflix (makes time go way faster).
I bought the x30, and it seems to be perfect for my size and where I want to be. At the start, I was at about 5.25" length and 5.5" girth. I've always been a little thick because I used to do jelqing a lot. Now, roughly 4 months later I'm at 6" length and 6.2" girth. Can't tell you how much more confident I've been in bed since I've started - it's pretty freaking awesome. Even my girlfriend of 4 years has expressed how much she can feel a difference since I've started to use it. She lives out of state so every time we get together I get a little bit bigger and every encounter it gets easier and easier to get her there and it makes it extremely enjoyable for me - and of course for her.
At first, there is a learning curve on how to use it comfortably, but then you just learn to adjust. After about the 2-month mark, I decided to throw in jelqing into the mix and it made a huge difference on how much water I can pump out - it's insane. Also, I've recently stopped using the little padded add-on they place on the "newer" x30s because I found I can't get as much suction and when I take it off I feel it a hell of a lot more without it. If you're skeptical, just get the older version because it is cheaper and you get better suction, which in turn means greater gains. I feel as though I've been missing out on my older sessions because I kept the little pad on and I couldn't pump as much.
Currently, I've been pumping about 2 days on and one off, roughly. I'll warm up by doing some jelqing for about 2 minutes then pump for 5-6 then give about a 5-minute break. Within those 5 minutes, I'll do some more jelqing then afterward I start pumping again, and I just repeat it until I have pumped a full 3 times and jelqed for 5 times.
Please note that you have to put in the time and effort in order to see results!! You can't expect to go to the gym once a week and be ripped by the end of two months; it just doesn't work that way! The ones that are giving bad reviews are most likely the ones who don't put in enough time or aren't consistent enough! So if you put in the time and effort, it will pay off. I always just tell myself "Rome wasn't built in a day" and it really sucks - but once you see the expression of your GF shocked at how much bigger you've gotten it makes it all worth it. Also, just like working out, having a "decent" diet will go a long way. In the end, it really compares to exercising because when you eat right and are consistent, that's when you see the most noticeable gains.
Btw, I've been doing it in a hot tub which makes it AMAZING. Totally recommended if you have access and the privacy to do so. The higher the water temperature, the more you can pump out!
I recently purchased a Bathmate (X50) with the intention of increasing my girth. It seems to have really worked.
My starting girth was 4 3/4 inch (12.1) at the mid shaft with 5 (12.7) around the head. Immediately after pumping my measurements were substantially increased but would return to the pre-pump size after a few days.
After pumping two times a week for a couple of months, my girth seems to have permanently increased. I now measure 5 (12.7) mid-shaft and 5 1/2 (14) around the head. Immediately after pumping I measure 6 (15.2) mid-shaft and 6 3/4 (17.1) around the head. This enlargement lasts for about three days.
Flaccid length has also increased. I am now hanging at 6 (15.2). When actively pumping I reach the 9 1/2 (24.1) end of scale mark.
I bought the Bathmate hydro x30. It doesn't work. The walls of the product hurt your penis as it is constantly rubbing against them. I don't know if lube will solve this.
All of these penis enlargement devices are scams, including all the extenders. You can't even return the product after you've opened and tried it.
I got the Bathmate x30 12 months ago, and I really like it. I didn't know that the newer version xx30 was coming out. I would have waited since I assume it will be an improved design. With that being said, the x30 isn't a bad design at all. The short few months I've had it, I did not experience anything unexpected. There is a learning curve on how to use it quickly and comfortably.
The comfort pad works very well in the bath, but it doesn't provide enough suction in the shower for the pump to hang without a strap. Removing the comfort pad makes it possible for the x30 to hang from just its suction under the water stream of the shower.
I wouldn't mind purchasing it again. When I remove the pump after using it, my penis looks fatter and longer than it ever was. I can already see that the gains are becoming more permanent. My flaccid girth and length are unreal compared to my old pre-PE regime flaccid size, my erections are slightly bigger and harder, and I pop semi erections all the time for no reason.
To be 100% honest, I have been using Bathmate in conjunction with jelqing and stretches, and I also stopped looking at p*rn and masturbating.
I haven't used Bathmate for some time now, but I have been slowly getting myself back into it.
I like this pump, absolutely love it. In the beginning, I was using the X30 which was ideal for me at the time and finally switched to the X40 after I outgrew the smaller one. The expansion is fantastic. For water pumps, this one is the best.
Using the Bathmate is most effective with water in the bathtub. That is why it's called BATHmate. The fact that you are in hot water already gives you a great warm up. I begin with a few easy stretches in the water to get myself loosened up. I usually get an erection after that. I then start doing some edging or stretching to get myself more engorged.
Following that, I put on the Bathmate. I use a timer with 5-minute intervals so I can track my time with and without the pump. I warm up with two 5-minute sessions, and then I switch to longer 10 (to 15) minute sessions that include Bathmate hardcore pumping and stretching for girth improvement.
Any time during the process if you need to take a break just do it. Relax and think about enlarging your penis. Imagine how big it will look and truly believe in it.
Don't be worried about starting with short light sessions. Try to make it a fun experience. Sit down in the bath, turn on the hot water and relax. After finishing stay in the bath for a bit longer to let your penis skin be nurtured by the warm water.
I started using it from September 2016, but I didn't notice any substantial results although I went through all the required procedure given by Bathmate in its manual. I use it for 3 five-minute sessions with gaps of 2 minutes. I don't do jelqing, but I do stretching. Even 2 stars I find overrated. I am disappointed by its results. If anyone can suggest anything, I would try it out.
I am using Bathmate for a week. Today I used Bathmate for 16 min, and my penis looked great (much longer and thicker when flaccid) but it only lasted for 20 min, and then went back to normal. It is very important for me to get girth.
I guess it's normal because my penis isn't used to the expansion, so the more regularly I use it, the sooner my results will stay for a longer period of time after use.
I am only using Bathmate. I stopped doing jelqs because I don't have time, so I only spend 20 min a day pumping.
I just got my Hydromax X30. It has been almost a week now. I am still getting to know the device. I am giving it 3 stars just because I could see some effect after using it. My penis is fuller because of the amount of blood going through the veins.
Here is my issue and I don't know if any of you experience the same thing:
Whenever I use the Hydromax X30, for about 2-3 minutes with 2-3 pumps, I feel like cumming, and that bothers me a lot. I have to release the pump and wait for a while. Sometimes I ejaculate right after.
I need some solution to this issue because if I keep going like this, I won't be able to see good results in the long run.
RESPONSE (from Fabio): I used to have the same problem. Don't worry about it... It took me some time, but one day it just stopped. Now, I go way beyond max pressure, and my sessions are between 30 to 45 minutes long, and I never cum anymore while in the Bathmate. I hope everything works out for you. Just keep at it.
Been using it for a while now and haven't seen a difference. I'm using the x30, and I saw no results, can anyone help on this?
I have been using Hydromax since February 2016. When I started, I was 5.4 inches long. My routine is 25 minutes a day for 5 days a week. I do stretching and kegels for the duration of the 25 minutes. And I pump very hard. After 7 months I measured at 6.6 inches, which was amazing. I was maxing out because my girth was filling up the pump. So I used a condom to limit girth expansion and ever since then I have completely gone off the chart of my Hydromax X30. My dong can hit the top of the pump, and would probably be 190mm if the chart extended that far. My confidence ridiculous and I don't feel small anymore. I really get that domination feeling during sex that I always wanted. My results don't make sense, and I don't get why things have worked so amazingly. But I am almost 7.3 inches now after 10 months. Like wtf...
This is a poor quality product. The valves went faulty after 5 months and within the guarantee period. I contacted the customer service, and they told me to send it back to them to repair. The postage to send back was high, and when I asked the customer service agent if the postage would be refunded to me the answer was no, it is the customer's responsibility to pay this, despite it being defective through no fault of mine. I asked if the guarantee would commence from scratch again when the pump was repaired, the answer was no.
Summing up: A poor, cheap quality product, probably made in China or Korea or a third world country.
Poor customer service and care.
Furthermore, this product will never increase the size of your penis girth or length permanently. It returns to normal size after a few minutes. Therefore this is a myth. The only way to increase length and girth permanently is with a surgical operation by a cosmetic surgeon. Do not believe all the reviews that state a permanent increase. Not true!!!
So I am a 39-year-old male. I noticed over the past year that my erections were no longer as hard as they used to be. Still hard enough for sex but not at all anywhere near what they used to be. Doesn't stand up the way it should. I received my bath mate x30 3 Days ago. Last night was my second time using it. I must say, I'm very impressed already!!!!!
The first night I used it I was able to pump up to 4.5 inches and did that twice for 7 minutes both times. Didn't notice any change after I was done. But my girlfriend got home from work about 2:30 A.M. and we had sex. Something was a little different. I noticed my erection was a little stiffer. Ok great.
So last night, my second time using it, I was able to pump up to 5.25 inches, and I did that twice for 7 minutes both times. I think I was able to pump up a little more because I used a water based lube on my Penis. It was much more comfortable. When I pumped up, my penis swole up and filled up the complete circumference of the tube. The lube made it slide up easier. Had sex about an hour after and noticed again my erection was a little stiffer.
This morning (Day 3), I actually woke up with an erection. That has not happened for me in years. I also notice my penis is hanging lower and feels fuller. No pain at all. There is a slight little red mark at the base on top but nothing major. A couple of red spots is all. I tried twisting the tube a little after I pumped up to better align the measurement tab and maybe this pinched the skin a little. Everything feels good so far. I will post another review in about a week. So far, I highly recommend this.
I got the Bathmate Hercules Hydropump since I never tried this type of product before. It feels really nice in the bath tub. Forces you to get an erection even if you do not have one. Very nice for an old man as myself (I am 50 years old). For real size increase though, I think you would need to put on more pressure, but this pump just does not go that far... I still love it though.
I give this product a negative 5-star rating. First of all, I posted my review on their website, and it was removed. They only allow positive reviews on their site, which they probably pay people to post.
Not only will this product not make your penis bigger, but it will also bruise your penis and cause temporary dysfunction. My girlfriend asked me to STOP using it. Even when I got it, she didn't like the idea of it. And after 4 months of daily use, I saw NO NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE IN SIZE. And now that I've dug deeper reading up on Bathmate lawsuits and real legitimate reviews, I wish I would have never heard about this awful product. I don't even want to try to get a refund as I've read they try to bully you while doing so.
I wish there were a way to get more people to hear about the real reviews; this is a company that needs to go bankrupt NOW! DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY.
I purchased this for my man as he seen the advertising and really wanted to try it. As there is a "guarantee". So I purchased it for him from the official Bathmate store called bathmateshope.us.
So it came, and of course, with no prior experience he tried it and complained that it made his pelvis really tender from pressing it against his body. He decided it wasn't for him. So I emailed the company about returning the product, only for them to inform me there are no refunds because they cannot resell it. Even though the web search showed "Enjoy a 60-day trial".
So after spending $159 on some plastic tube, we were told this "If he is experiencing the discomfort on his pelvis, please tell him to try using it without the long insert comfort pad (gray piece), we also sell x30 cushion rings that improve comfort in this area as well".
I wish I could have put this review as well as had a place to read reviews directly on their site. While I read the reviews on here, they did not talk about what to do if you weren't satisfied.
I have been using Bathmate x30 for 5 days, and I haven't noticed a difference in size or girth. I don't know if it is the same for everyone else.
Got this pump 2 months ago and thought I would share some of my insights. First of all - despite the rough rubber, I find it very comfortable to wear. The pressure is very good. Second of all - the gains are very evident. After using it for a month, I could tell my penis was bigger both erect and flaccid. Especially the girth increased. I will keep using it and update you guys even more.
I bought an X40 about 20 months ago from the official Hydromax Pump website in the UK. I paid the original price, and it included all legit and real parts as it came from the original UK manufacturers. A few weeks ago, I found that the black switch would only lock in one position, so I took off the valve assembly, cleaned it, and re-installed back on. However, this caused my X40 to lose pressure and not work at all. I contacted the suppliers, and within one day I received a brand new valve assembly. So big thanks to the warranty support staff at officialhydromaxpump.com
I gave this review 4 stars instead of 5 because it broke in the first place.
I really love this pump. Very easy and enjoyable to use. I am 40 years old and see increases in my penis size immediately after using it. I get instant erections with it despite the fact that many times I cannot get hard. I have the Hydromax Xtreme for the external pump, and it is very useful. Definitely recommend.
I got the Hydromax x30 after trying out the Penomet pump for a few months. The Hydromax is a lot better. I just feel better, and the pressure is stronger. Great buy, probably the best penis pump out there. I used it for several weeks and saw some gains already!
Good first pump. If you are a beginner and never used pumps before, you will really enjoy it. Good pressure and very fun to use. Very simple and you do not need an instructional video. I am 40 years old and can feel it brings blood back to my penis. Love it.
I just got the Hydromax x30 pump and decided to give it a slight stress test, and it holds very well. I did some aggressive usage for several minutes and found that the gaiters are very strong. Definitely high quality. Saw slight results of a swollen looking penis. Not sure if that is normal. But I will continue using it.
So I decided to go with the Hydromax even though I never tried the "beginner" Bathmate pump. This was a good decision since I really like the increased pressure and always max it out. I will follow up with my penis size increase in a later post.
I tried several pumps, and I can say that this is the best. Quality and results are great. Would recommend getting the stronger version though...
The inventor of the pump is John Oakes.
