In this Bathmate Hydromax review, I'll cover all basics, including features and benefits, then move on to my own personal experience and success using the device.

What's the Bathmate Hydromax?

The Bathmate Hydromax is a penis enlargement device that will gradually and permanently grow your penis size if used consistently once or twice a day for 15 to 20 minutes.

The Bathmate Hydromax, like all penis pumps, uses vacuum pressure to draw blood from your body into your penis to temporarily expand your penile tissue. Penis pumps are comprised of a plastic tube with an open end for your penis and a pump for expelling air or water that’s controlled by a valve.

Penis pumps enhance the size and health of the penis, and when you first use the Hydromax, you’ll notice an immediate–increase in your flaccid and erect penis size. Those size gains are just temporary, though.

Your penis will return to its normal size within a day or so if you don’t follow a consistent penis pumping routine.

Hydromax benefits

  • Harder erections.This is why doctors recommend the Hydromax as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, or ED.
  • It will straighten a curved penis. This is why penis pumps are prescribed for guys with Peyronie’s disease.
  • Your confidence will skyrocket. Imagine getting naked in front of other people and not flushing with embarrassment and imagining what they’re thinking about you.
  • Your libido will catapult to new heights. If you’re like me, seeing you dick grow before your eyes doesn’t just give you extra swagger–It makes you a horn dog. And who could blame you?
  • Safe to use. According to the American Urological Association guidelines, Bathmate pumps are safe to use because they’re equipped with vacuum pressure limiters.

How penis vacuum pumps work

Just as your biceps grow bigger after doing regular biceps exercises at the gym, your dick grows bigger from regular expansion with a vacuum pump like the Hydromax.

Penis enhancement devices like the Hydromax work because they harness the human body’s natural ability to expand, repair, and grow new tissue from existing tissue. Scientists call this biological process mitosis.

If you follow your enlargement routine consistently, that repeated tissue expansion gradually lengthens and thickens the tissue and blood vessels in your dick. And your size gains last longer and longer.

Typically after two to three months of regular workouts, Hydromax users notice a significant increase in their penis length and girth.

Size and weight

  • External width: 3.5 inches / 8.9 cm
  • External height: 12 inches / 30.5 cm
  • Weight: 0.9 lbs / 400 grams

Parts and accessories

If you’re looking for a complete pumping rig that comes with all the bells and whistles, take a look at the Hydroextreme in your size. You’ll get Bathmate’s top-of-the-line penis pump along with plenty of useful accessories.

But if you’re like me and just want a simple, effective and easy-to-use penis pump, the Hydromax is for you.

In the box

Your Bathmate arrives pre-assembled and ready to use. Just rinse it out and start your penis enlargement routine!

  • You'll also get the user manual and a free package of Bathmate Jelqing Enhancement Serum.

How to use

  • Place the open end of the cylinder over your penis and seal it against your body.
  • Open the valve and pump out some of the air or water that was inside the vacuum cylinder.

When you pump water out of vacuum cylinder, you create suction that pulls blood from your body into your penis. All that blood from your body rushing into your penis produces a familiar result–an erection.

How it feels

The size and hardness of the erections you’ll get from pumping will surprise you.

I’ve been pumping for years and I’m always surprised by the power produced by my Bathmate Hydromax7.

Imagine your morning wood hard-ons on steroids and that will give you a taste of what you’re in for.

Cleaning and maintenance

When you use a Bathmate hydropump, small amounts of the natural oils on your skin will get onto the pump.  

However, Bathmates never really get dirty. Since you’re constantly rinsing the pump with fresh water, dirt and oil are usually washed off automatically.

After a final rinse, let your Hydromax dry completely to avoid growing any mold or mildew.

  • After using it, give the pump a final rinse with clean water
  • Give it a couple vigorous shakes
  • Use a towel to pat the inside dry or let it drip dry

Storage, portability and travel

Since Bathmates are so tiny, you’ve got lots of storage options. Almost any drawer, cabinet, or closet in your home will be big enough to store it.

The Bathmate Hydromax is small enough you'll have no shortage of places to stash it discreetly.

And its small footprint makes it an ideal companion for out-of-town trips, since you can pack it in a carry-on bag or in checked luggage. 


All things considered, is the Bathmate Hydromax a good value for someone looking for a penis pump from a reputable brand? 

After using it for four weeks, I can absolutely vouch for its quality. It’s a solid value for the money.

Do a little research and you can easily find lots of cheap penis pumps online. Personally, I’ve never bought a cheap pump. But I have several friends who have—and I’ve heard plenty of stories about cracked cylinders, unsealable seals, and broken valves. 

Cheap pumps can’t be returned, so the entire purchase price ends up going down the drain. Save the money and buy a quality pump from a reputable manufacturer.
