Top Penile Pump Choices – Reviews and Facts

A penis pump can improve penis size, erection quality, and curvature. If you are planning to use one for the first time, it can be confusing with the numerous choices. If you are not careful, you may end up with a pump that is not made for you and does not fit your needs.

We do not consider a penis pump an advanced PE device. However, if you are brand new to PE, we recommend that you start with some basic exercises for a few days before pumping.

To aid you in your choice, we picked the best penis enlargement pumps on the market in 2019, researched their pros and cons, and how they differ from other brand models.

1. Bathmate/HydromaxBathmate Hydromax Pumps

Penis pumps from the Bathmate consist of the original Bathmate Hydro7 (Hercules), 4 Hydromax models, and 4 HydroXtreme models.

Like Penomet, Bathmate pumps also utilize water to create a vacuum.

While Penomet only has one cylinder size, the Bathmate series has a total of 5 cylinder sizes. Choosing the right cylinder can be a little complicated, but once you find it, you’ll get the closest fit to your penis size.

Our Bathmate review contains useful information on the different models, operation, buying tips, and customer’s testimonials. Our size guide helps you pick the right model.


  • A wide range of available cylinders. Whatever the size of your penis is, there is at least one size that is the closest fit to give you optimal comfort.
  • Safety and self-control. Like Penomet, there’s a limit as to how much pressure is generated with water.
  • Two buttons (for slow and immediate pressure release) are present.


  • Upgrading is expensive. Once you have outgrown your current cylinder, you have to buy an entirely new set if you wanted more size gains.
  • A pressure threshold limits how much your penis can grow.
  • Can only be used in the bath or shower.

Price: $110 (original Bathmate Hydro7) to $399 (HydroXtreme11)

Money back guarantee: 60 days

Warranty: 12 months

Manufacturer: DX Products (UK)


Growth: 0.8-inch length gain after 4 months; 1.6 inches total length gain after 12 months; 2.1 inches total length gain after 20 months

2. PenometPenomet pump with gaiters

Across Penomet’s line of water-based pumps, the cylinder comes in only one size. What makes the models differ from each other is the number of included gaiters: Standard has 1, Extra has 3, Premium has 5. The gaiters are removable and interchangeable, and each has its own unique pressure strength. When starting with Penomet, it’s recommended to go with the lowest gaiter before progressing to a stronger one.

Check our Penomet review with the pump’s benefits, operation, and testimonials from actual users.


  • Strong, comfortable, leak-free gaiters.
  • Long-term usage. The process of upgrading is simple: you just switch to a stronger gaiter. No need to buy an entirely new pump if you’ve outgrown your current setup.
  • Safety and self-control. There is a limit to how much pressure you can generate with water. This prevents injuries.


  • Not comfortable for penises with less than 3.5 inches of girth. The one-size cylinder could be too wide, making it difficult to create an optimal vacuum.
  • Can only be used while in the bath or shower.
  • Only one button for pressure release is present.

Price: $127 (Standard) to $297 (Premium)

Penis Pumps to Avoid

X4 Labs manufactures manually-operated, air-based pumps which used to rival Penomet and Bathmate products. However, the company is no longer active and you won’t get after-sales support if you choose to buy one. Some customers complained that the manufacturer stopped responding after receiving the payment. Strangely, many outdated sites still list X4 Labs as a viable option.

DP-4000 is another pump that used to be popular but it is no longer supported. The manufacturer’s website and eBay store are still actively selling the product. However, this electronic air pump requires software that needs to be installed on a computer. Their software’s last update was in May 2012, so it could be outdated.

Most manual air pumps on Amazon and eBay are cheaper than Penomet, Bathmate, and DP-4000. But these products are not guaranteed to hold the pressure well, so we recommend to stick with products that have been proven effective.

Final tips

If you are new to penis pumps, the best recommendation for starters are Penomet and Bathmate. These two brands have already established their reputation in the male enhancement industry. Being water-based pumps, they are both safe to use and make you less prone to injuries.

If you choose Penomet, we recommend the Premium package so that you get 3 gaiters. You’ll be using Penomet for a long time and having 5 gaiters ensures you have enough tools to grow.

If you opt for a Bathmate pump, check our sizing guide to know which model will suit you. Remember, choosing a cylinder that is too small won’t help you achieve your penis enlargement goals.
