Penomet is a great hydropump for guys with a starting girth over 6in. Its super lightweight, and that makes using it in the shower easy. Because the cylinder is designed larger, the Penomet is not the best for for all guys. I would give them 4.5 stars, but they also don't offer any additional sizes for smaller guys- which earns Penomet 4 stars and a lot of happy customers.

Penomet is a competitor to the more well known Bathmate pump, and is growing in popularity quickly. I bought the premium edition for this review, and I will cover the following aspects (which I know to be important for a new pumper):

  • comfort level
  • vacuum strength
  • minimum and maximum girth
  • minimum and maximum length
  • valve quality
  • weight and ease of use
  • my before and after pictures
  • quick look at the warranty and guaranteed offered
  • is it worth the money?


Penomet is a twist on the traditional design, but still every inch a penis pump. Its appealing, just looking at the sales page enticed me enough to buy one, if only to review it. It’s simple, designed to work in the bathtub or air, and have no moving parts. The suction gaiters are comfortable, even more comfortable than another popular brand.

About Hydropumps + Benefits

I have owned and used a lot of different penis pumps, and in my experience water based penis pumps (hydro pumps) are much more effective for permanent size increases than their air based counterparts, this is because the heat of the water relaxes and expands your blood vessels for the duration of the pump, which means

  • you can skip the warm up and warm down recommended when using a traditional pump
  • you get more oxygenated blood flowing to your penis
  • longer lasting increase in size
  • increase in length and girth quickly
  • stronger erections from improved blood flow

The gains made will last anywhere from 4 – 6 hours starting the first time you use it. This is in contrast to other penis pumps that don’t take advantage of warm water, and require weeks to create gains that last for more than a few hours. The penomet is the largest water based pump available, which makes it suitable for everyone regardless of your size.

Penomet now comes in a variety of colors.  I am not really sure why they did this, but there must have been demand for it.  Personally I still recommend the clear one, you want to see the results you’re getting live not have a pretty colored penis pump.  Either way, here are the colors now offered:


penomet colors (green, purple, orange, blue, pink, clear)


“The pump is designed to allow a minimal compression force, while achieving maximum expansion, encouraging maximum penis growth and minimum discomfort. The more water is forced from the Penomet, the more the penis is encouraged to expand and the higher the hydro force vacuum that’s created. The more you use the Penomet the bigger the vessels become, allowing more blood to flow and fill the tissue. It’s like body building for your penis.”


Overview of Penomet Premium

The Penomet is sold in three different packages, the Premium, Extra, and Standard. The premium edition comes with 5 different strength, medical grade, silicone “gaiters” which control the force of the water being pumped into the tube. After purchasing you’ll want to follow an exercise routine to maximize the gains you get. Penomet gives you one after purchasing (available on my site as well) and they recommend using different gaiters on different days to avoid your body getting accustomed to one pressure of pump. The 5th gaiter included is labeled the force 80 and is the strongest pressure they make, and is only included if you pickup the premium edition.

If you are enlarging your penis using this pump and you plan to use it regularly (you will, its super easy to use, feels great, and the results really do show super fast) then you need to work your way up to the higher suction force. You can choose between blue or clear colored tubes, and the gaiters are pre-color coded for easy identification. They include a bottle of gun oil shine, its a premium lubricant that you will use if you choose to pump outside the shower or bathtub. Most people don’t though, the heat of the water improves the results so much its not worth anyone’s time to.

The premium edition will run you $297 bucks. The penomet will enlarge your penis in 15 minutes, for up to 8 hours. That means if you are having a lady caller visiting, just use the penomet before she arrives. There is no other pump out there that can create these kinds of results, do your dick a favor and give this one year satisfaction guarantee a try.

Penomet is FOREVER UPGRADABLE! It has removable gaiters so you can replace a damaged gaiter, buy a stronger gaiter, and never have to buy another penis pump again. Penomet is the largest penis pump on the market today. Penomet Premium customers get a lifetime 50% off discount on ALL future orders of ANYTHING. That includes the stronger gaiters they are releasing. Penomet gives you a whole year to try out the pump, and still get your money back if you hate it. Penomet increases your girth and length - permanently. Penomet doesnt leak if you use it standing up like the Bathmate. It can be used in the shower, bath, or air without any issues. Penomet is a Certified Class 1 Medical Grade Device- Just like- no-one else. Penomet is completely 100% dishwasher safe- you don't have to buy some special cleaning kit.


Penomet Extra & Standard

The extra package comes with three gaiters and a two year warranty. The shipping charges are a little less when you buy a lesser version of the product because of the weight difference. The standard edition comes with one gaiter (the lowest force), and a one year warranty. They say each pump package comes with a different level of support, but they offer everyone the same assistance. You are basically paying for the gaiters when you pickup the premium edition, and you are going to need them anyway. The removable gaiters is what makes penomet so great, its completely upgradable so you never have to buy another pump again, just buy new gaiters.

I personally go with the best package just because they offer a better warranty, and whether it works great or fails completely I know the fault was not on my end because I went with the best. In the case of Penomet there are a few good reasons to go “all in” but regardless Penomet is the pump I recommend most.

The Penomet is the largest pump available, meaning it can accommodate almost any sized penis.

Which Version Should I Purchase?

UPDATE: I have expanded on this to make the benefits of each package more clear, learn what each penomet package comes with here.

The Premium edition Penomet is the best bang for your buck, if you are debating buying the Basic or Standard edition of Penomet I recommend you go with the Bathmate instead.  Penomet is awesome, but you want all the strength gaiters, and prem customers will soon be getting access to a special members only area with 50% off ALL items as well as a place to discuss your routines with other Penomet users.

The Penomet team are building a members area called MyPenomet (see update), and you get access with the Premium Purchase only.  Additionally guys, the gaiters are sold for upwards of 50-60 dollars each, so if you go with the basic version you will wind up paying more in the long run.  Its just smarter to take advantage of everything you can with this deal.

How Penomet Works & How To Use It

Penomet is used primarily in the bathtub or shower, but can be used without water as well. All you do is fill it with hot-warm water, place it over your penis, and press it against your pelvic bone to create suction around the penis. Excess water spurts out from the valve on the top of the pump, and the soft silicon gaiter works to hold the pump against your body even when you aren’t holding it in place. Here is quick video showing how to use Penomet:


My Personal Experience

First time I used the penomet I used it in the bathtub, but these days I just take a 20 minute shower instead. Using it in the bathtub will keep the water in the tub hotter, but you cannot realistically run a bath everyday without being the most water wasting person on the planet. Its also the only water based penis pump that CAN be used while standing up. I needed the force 75 suction gaiter for the shower, because the weight is so much more when filled with water and hanging from your body. No water leaks out as long as you keep the pubes shaved clean, or at least trimmed. So if you have a secret garden downstairs you’ll need to do some yard work before using it.

The pump is strong, and it feels good with the warm water. I sometimes start out with a completely flaccid penis, run the shower and once the water is warm I fill up the pump tube, and then put it over my penis. It always gives me a natural erection when I first start pumping. After 15 minutes I take it off and have a much thicker and longer flaccid penis, and for me it lasts about 6 hours. First time I used it I didn’t see much difference in my erect penis size, but after about 5 days of using it everyday I measured a quarter inch increase in girth after my daily pump. So expect erect gains after your flaccid gains, not before.

Overall its a great water based penis pump, and it’s completely idiot proof and simple to use. Its made strong, comes with a great warranty and guarantee, and over time it will give you permanent increases in size.

Before and After Pictures

Since the penomet uses the power of water and heat to accelerate permanent gains, a ton of before and after picture results are available, even from people who have only used it once or twice (remember the results in 15 minutes claim? Its legit). Full Size Before and After

This is my before and after photos. My first time pumping. You can view the full resolution images on the review page.

Are Penomet Results Permanent?

Penis Pumps generally do not guarantee long lasting or permanent results, but the penomet does; they claim it will create long term gains with regular use. Its true, earlier I said the power of the warm water creates improved results. If you read around on forums where people are dedicated to pumping, you’ll learn without a warm up for 15 minutes and a warm down for 15 more your results wont last long. Its true, and the penomet can create longer lasting pumps in a short period of time because it warms you up while your using it.

So in the short term your going to see fast results, but they wont last for longer than 8 hours or so. That means if you want to keep that pump going you need to continue use everyday. Long term results will begin to cement themselves after month three. They promise 1-3 inches of length gain and 30% in girth from regular use. I think most people will only see about one inch in length, but the 30% in girth is under what you can expect if you use it properly and follow the workout program they include.

From The Manufacturer;

“Generally, most individuals can gain between 1-3 inches in length with a 30% increase in thickness. People who are much smaller, flaccid, seem to get the fastest, most noticeable results; Generally, after between 1 to 3 months, the length will start increasing anywhere from half an inch upwards and the more you use it the fatter and longer your penis will appear.”

The Warranty & Guarantee

There is a three year warranty with the purchase even the basic Penomet pump, so if it breaks or one of the gaiters tears from use you can get a replacement. Its not going to break though, this is made strong with thick plastic and really durable rubber for the gaiters. The guarantee they offer is almost absurd, one full year (365 days) to test it out and if you dont think it works for you or it won’t work for you (also pretty unlikely) you can return it and get your money back.

Penomet 365 Day Money Back Guarantee

Shipping and Delivery

Shipping is discreet, of course, but not free. Its 20 bucks to ship the penomet to you in a plain brown package with a tracking number. I live in the states, and it took two days for me to get my package, all discreet and left by my door with no signature needed.

Hey Greg remember me? I emailed you about it working and you asked me to take before and after pictures. I tried emailing you back – I took the pictures you can use on your site if you want.


Do you use the penomet or the bathmate? Which do you think is better for long term results? I want to go from 5 inches to 7 inches, and Its hard for me to believe a pump will do that much for me. thoughts?


I’m interested in buying the Penomet Penis Pump. However, I do have few questions. Could you please assist me in answering them?

1.Can I use the Penomet Penis Pump with no water? (I am deployed overseas where we have shortage of water/showers.)

2. If i use it in my room would that leak water or?

Rico C.

Hi Greg,

You’re awesome for taking the time to answer so many of our questions here. I’m trying to select my first pump, since I’ve never used one before. I won’t be using it in the bathtub, only in the shower.

I’m debating whether to buy a Penomet Extra which is $210 delivered approximately or Bathmate Hydromax x40 which is $199 (free shipping).

Which one to choose? I also have some questions for you please:

1. Why should I be concerned about 50% off lifetime discounts if I were to buy the Penomet Premium when I can buy the Penomet extra? Penomet Extra is $100 cheaper than the Penomet Premium and is only missing the 60 and 80 gaiters which you could buy later. I have a feeling you might say 50% off of future products, but I probably won’t be purchasing another product in at least a year or more. Why would I need to? Why should I worry about that now? Who knows how the market will change and what will be available by then from this vendor or any newcomers.

2. How much are each of the gaitors for Penomet (regular pricing) + shipping and where do you buy them since I did not see them listed on the site?

3. Do you prefer the blue or clear for the Penomet?

4. How much force does the Bathmate have in comparison to the Penomet?

5. Why doesn’t the Bathmate need different gaiters to yield comparable results to the Penomet?

6. Is the Penomet due for a design change or new release any time soon?

Thank you in advance



Thank you for answering my questions however i had one more question.
Should i get any massage oil or anything else along with Penomet pump to increase faster? i think i can afford as long there is no side effects. Thank you again


Curious. I sent Penomet customer service and email asking if it was possible to purchase individual gaiters. Their response: “Unfortunately, we don’t sell the Gaiters for the Penomet separately. If you do want the additional Gaiters though, you can upgrade your package to either the Penomet Extra Package or the Penomet Premium Package if you’d like. It’s simple to do this as you just need to pay the difference in price for your existing Package to the Package that you’d like to upgrade to.” Is this customer service agent misinformed or what?? I find it strange that they didn’t mention anything about selling individual gaiters now or in the future.


hello greg, what is your routine with penomet and sizegenetic extender?


Ok quick question. I’m about 8 3/4 in length with a curve to the left.(I may be under shooting, I haven’t measured since my 1st year out of high school and I’m in my 30’s now) which would you recommend for my size, the Goliath or Penomet?


Hey Greg, im 6.5″ EL what do you recommend as far as the penomet goes?


I have the first bathmate, and it work great, I was looking at the new pumps and found that the penomet has really good opinions!! so I bought the one that comes with 3 gaiters, after trying it, I felt more pressure with my old bathmate than the penomet with 75 gaiter. i dont think I am doing anything wrong, but better i ask.


1 Month with Penomet! Still going!


Hey Greg,

I have a question on the Penomet and was wondering if I can get some help.

I’ve been using the Penomet for about 2 weeks. I was reaching the end of using the blue gaiter when the Penomet completely stopped giving me that strong suction. I didn’t change how I used it; it just stopped. I thought I had to use the black gaiter now, tried that, and it still didn’t work. I tried all gaiters, and nothing. I called Penomet to have my tube replaced, and they sent me a completely new package of all gaiters, tube, and gun oil shine. I tried using the black gaiter with the new tube, and nothing. They did tell me if I still experienced no suction again, to contact them again.

Do you have any idea what might be the problem? They told me there might be a crack and that’s why they sent me a new one. But my new one doesn’t work either. I don’t see how I’m doing the pumping wrong as I was doing it correctly before.

Thanks for any input.


Is Greg MIA?


Thank Goodness! I was gonna start looking buddy!


7-10-2013. Attempted to call Penomet to upgrade…..well it has been 26 min on hold and no answer……not a happy customer.


PENOMET Customer Service Sucks! Great product but CSR suck!

Ok….so I ordered my Penomet on May 22, 2013. I received it promptly. I love my pump. After 3 calls and over 20min plus waits, I finally got someone live. I requested to upgrade from my standard to Extra….(that would mean more money) the CSR could not confirm or deny this would take place. She said that if it could happen, it may take a week. When I ask how I would know, she said that I may get an email confirmation or a call. REALLY! REALLY! Guys, just order the premium at the beginning. This will say you a great deal of frustration and in the long run….the money! Just another satisfied customer with Penoment.


OMG…Penomet finally responded. I received an email today, that I have been upgraded and my additional supplies are on their way! WhooooooHooooooooo! TGIF


Greg, what is the longest time you have pumped? I am comfortable at 15 min with no problem. Just throwing it out there… long everyone is pumping.


hey the head of cock turns a lil bluish when pumping and the other day i got a blue spot on my shaft? Good or bad?


Hey Jeff,
Just to add…just in case someone is taking a daily aspirin or blood thinner can also contribute. Just my thoughts as a healthcare person. I agree, might be too much intensity.


Hi Greg,

I have read some of these information and I interested purchasing “penomet pump” however i have few question:
1. Which website I should buy it with discount? Please provide me the link.
2. Which pump size is good for 5.5” erected size penis?
3. Is there any video how to use the pump, since most of videos from your website removed due to some violation of YouTube terms of service.
