Gaiters – What Matters?

Gaiter is the name given to the rubber portion at the base of the pump. This is what presses against your pelvic bone, and should be soft and comfortable against your body even at higher thrust. Without a good base gaiter padding, or a soft comfortable gaiter, rashes and skin irritation can develop. Both of the pumps have soft gaiters, but Bathmate wins by a landslide when it comes to comfort.

Fluid Retention

Fluid Retention in the penis is similar to fluid retention in a blister from burning your finger or hand- but without the pain attached to it. Water can build up beneath the skin if pumping with to much vacuum force. Sticking with what is comfortable, and reasonable, will prevent almost all possible injuries from pumping.


Sometimes we get buyers remorse. It happens, and should it happen to you, the last thing you want is to be explaining to your credit card company or bank why you want to issue a chargeback on that penis pump you just purchased. Nor do you want to sit on the phone with some sexy sounding phone support rep explaining that the pump you ordered is just to big for your penis. Reviewing the guarantees and Warranty information is important for those reasons and more.

Both companies offer a good warranty and guarantee. Bathmate has been around longer and has zero complaints with the BBB or on RipoffReport.com. Penomet has no complaints either, but being a newer company, the lack of complaints speaks less about them than it would if they had years of business under their belt. Make your own educated decision here.
