The Bathmate HydroMax and Xtreme series pumps are the latest additions to Bathmate’s (now famous) line of of penis pumps. Soon I will be updating this review to include the Hydromax x50, which will be the replacement for the old Goliath pump. For now- the Hydromax line brings some improvements from the first Hercules pump;
- New Gaiter System providing 35% more power
- Swivel Gaiters! You can rotate the bathmate 360 degrees while wearing it!
- Super Flow Lock Valve means no more leaking like the hercules
- [Xtreme Only] Hand Pump and Optional Use Tube
Benefits of Using Bathmate…
These are the official bathmate claims- as you read through my review I will cover my experience and which were more true for me than others.
- Gain 1-3 inches of length
- Increase Penis Thickness
- Boost Self Confidence
- Increase Sexual Stamina
- Intensify Your Orgasm
- Straighten Out That Curve
- Enlarge your Penis Head
- End Premature Ejaculation
- Helps with Erectile Dysfunction
This is my personal review of the bathmate line of penis pumps. I started pumping with the hercules, upgraded to the x30, and just recently upgraded again to the x40 Xtreme. I Usually when I read an article from some guy who reviews male enhancement products they leave out a ton of details, and usually list only the pros and skip the cons. So I enjoy sharing my unbiased reviews with people, and helping out when I can in the comments.
Why is bathmate so popular?
The Bathmate is a water based penis pump designed specifically to be used in the bath and shower. Water based pumps are much more effective, you’ll see results faster than you would using an old-school air based pump. Bathmate has been around for a long time, and been proven effective by hundreds of people.
It’s been featured on Tosh.0, and that media attention fueled knock off product creation all over the net. Amazon, eBay, you can buy cheap (easily broken) rip offs. Bathmate is the first and original water based penis pump. It’s difficult to search for penis pumps online without seeing Bathmate everywhere.
Size Comparison (Hercules, x30, x40, Xtreme x30, Xtreme x40 and Goliath)
Here you can see the difference in sizes available, Goliath being the largest but still having the old gaiter system, and hydromax x30 and x40 having the new super comfortable, no leak gaiter system.

My Opinion After Using Bathmate for 18 Months
First of all I love the bathmate, its awesome, it works, its easy to use and it doesn’t have a bunch of parts and small pieces. First time I used it I was a lot thicker girth wise, and it lasted about 4 hours. After a few more times using it (daily) my thickness increase lasted longer, about 8 hours after using it.
I think the most beneficial thing anyone can do with these pumps is to Kegel while pumped. Not only does this force more blood into your penis, but it also really works out your PC muscle. My erections are a lot stronger now, and my girth gains didnt really start showing until I began a routine of kegeling every morning inside the pump. My girth has increased permanently by 2.6cm. Thats a tad over a full inch.
The Bathmate comes in a few flavors, but I’m gonna focus on the best bang for your buck model, the Bathmate Hydromax.
How Does The Bathmate Penis Pump Work?
This video explains how the bathmate works to massively increase the size of your penis over a short period of time.
Overview of the Bathmate Hydromax
The Hydromax X30 is a new addition to the models they offer, its the best one in my opinion, because the suction is so much stronger. They claim its 30% stronger than the other models they offer, but it feels like much more. Obviously the amount of suction and how strong it is directly influences your results (meaning your thickness increase and possible length increase). More suction means more blood is pushing on the penile walls, causing expansion.
The silicon gaiter seal (plastic suction part that attaches to the bottom) is super soft and it contours to your body. The pumping is so strong that you could use this out of the water if you chose to, although the hot water drastically improves the results you will see after your first time so DEFINITELY make your first time using it in a hot bath.
It is limited in the size, if you are upwards of 8.5 inches erect then you should shoot for the Goliath model. It isn’t as powerful suction wise, but theres just no way you can fit into the Hydromax with that large of a penis.
The price range is about $160 bucks before shipping and tax. I think its a steal at that price, my girlfriend has noticed a big difference and asked me “why did your dick get so much bigger?“. Thats a question every man would love to be asked, and she doesn’t know im using it obviously so its even better.
The Goliath and Hercules Models
The Goliath edition is geared towards the adult industry, aka male porn stars. It’s made for penises over 9 inches in length and 2.8inches in girth. It is soon to be replaced with the Bathmate Hydromax x50- which should be coming out pretty soon. The Hercules is the old style pump- but still a very popular product and a completely smart purchase if you are short on cash. I started with the hercules, and then upgraded as I got thicker. It was introduced over 6 years ago and over 200k people bought it. Since its a little dated now the price tag is lower, at around 100 bucks.
This review focuses mostly on the new Hydromax line of pumps, but if you are low on funds, and still want a quality pump – buy the bathmate hercules.
My Personal Experience with the HydroMax
I shared a bit of my experience so far, but now I want to focus on why I truly love the Bathmate. There are a lot of penis pumps out there, but only water based pumps provide the extra girth expansion induced with hot water and an even vacuum. Bathmate is fully amphibious, and does not leak or “squeak” in air like the crap I used before. It’s super easy to clean, and more importantly- it is so damn comfortable and convenient. I can leave it in the shower with the shower strap attached, and every morning I sling it around by neck and give it five or six pumps and leave it alone. It’s just so easy and passive (assuming you don’t need to hide it from a significant other).
The vacuum pressure is easily adjusted on the top of the pump, and can be adjusted or quickly removed with one hand. The only thing I can say that is a little inconvenient about the Bathmate is shaving my pubes regularly. I’m not one to keep a huge bush downstairs, but I usually have some stubble (is that the right word for short pubes?). So if you have sensitive skin and tend to get acne like bumps, pickup some shaving cream.
I get absolutely no water retention in my penis after a 15 minute pump session- and my flaccid penis size was longer and thicker after my first time using it. I share that because no one wants to wait weeks for results, especially me because I am extremely impatient. After two weeks of pumping every morning I had a 1cm girth increase that lasts day to day. Pumping wont give you a lot of length gains, I use Phallosan for that (which is also fucking awesome and is the new thing I am trying to tell everyone about).
Bathmate is just one of those products that, once you buy it, you just use it. It’s stupid simple, and it works. I recommend every guy who wants a thicker penis try the bathmate. Especially if you have already tried other pumps like I had.
My Own Bathmate Before and After Pictures
(these are super high resolution pictures, be patient)
So are the Girth & Length Gains Permanent?
Short Answer: YES!
Long Answer: Over Time. The immediate gains you see after your first time using the Bathmate wont last forever, they will slowly fade over 3-4 hours after using it. The real results begin after about a month- this period is when what is called “cementing” occurs. Cementing just means the results you initially saw will start to become permanent. One cementing has begun, you will start seeing 0.2 – 0.5cm increases depending on how often you pump, and for how long.
The girth increase is caused by the expanding of the capillaries in your penis via the hot water, and massive amounts of blood expanding your girth via the vacuum. I freakin love this pump, nothing else has worked for me in the girth department.
Bathmate promises you 1-3 inches in length gains, and up to 30% larger girth as long as you follow a steady routine. In my experience, the length claims have been a little exaggerated – but the girth claims are spot on. The key for me, and for you is sticking to a daily routine, keeping your pump times consistent, and measuring once a week to track my progress.
Does it Really Help with Stamina and Give You Harder Erections?
The stamina claims I am not so sure about, I haven’t noticed myself lasting any longer in bed since using the HydroMax for a month. After using the Bathmate Hydromax for several months, I can officially share that the stamina claims are definitely true. After pumping my head is much less sensitive (not in a bad way) and I think that having my dick engorged with blood at least twice a day is responsible for my increased stamina. The erection strength claim is definitely true.
My erections were rock hard before, but it didn’t always stand straight up. After doing kegels in the Bathmate has definitely strengthened my pelvic floor and pc muscles. My erection angle is straight up 90 degrees pointing at the ceiling. I think everything really combines and comes together when you do this daily. My overall penile blood flow has at least doubled, and I always look like I have a 70% erection. When I get a boner it happens faster than it did before too- which I know is a good thing but I mark on the annoying list. Getting a rapid boner in the gym is not cool.
Your Warranty and Guarantee
The bathmate warranty covers the device for 12 months from any cracks, breaks, you get the idea. If anything goes wrong they will replace it for free. I havent had any issues with mine, but I have read that not cleaning the rubber gaiters can shorten their lifespan and dull them out. So keep them clean.
The Guarantee is right up my alley as a skeptic of pretty much everything I read online. The guarantee says specifically;
Quite simply if, after using the device for the 4 week period you can demonstrate that you haven’t made any progress at all in either length or girth, we’ll give you your money back.
All we ask to validate this guarantee is that you send your warranty form back within 1 week of receiving the device complete with your current measurements.
Thats a good guarantee, but take note you have to prove you didn’t make any progress. So before I started using the Bathmate I took before pictures with a newspaper showing the date just to be safe. Now that I know how popular this pump is, and how good its working for me I feel comfortable telling you guys that you can skip this step. You arent going to want your money back, Theres just no way anyone would. However, for those super skeptics out there who dont believe my pictures, or my review this is good advice for you – Take the before pictures.
