Bathmate FAQ Page

This is a list of questions and tips not listed on the Bathmate Official Website that should prove useful.

How does Bathmate work to increase penile girth?

Bathmate creates a vacuum, enlarging the corpora cavernosa with oxygen rich blood. This is similar to an erection, but the vacuum forces more blood into the penile tissue than what the body can do naturally.  This expands the tissues, causing tiny micro tears in the tissue. These tears are small enough that repair only takes about a day.

These tears heal larger than they were initially to prevent tearing again.  After daily pumping for months, the penile tissue has grown new cells to repair the micro tears- which results in a larger, thicker penis.

Will Bathmate cause Skin Discoloration on my Penis?

While discoloration is not listed as a side effect of the Bathmate, it is a possible consequence of any pump. Discoloration can be prevented by limiting pumping sessions to 15 minute intervals, once per day for the first 30 days of use. After 30 days, test pumping twice per day.

How much girth can I gain from pumping with the Bathmate?

Bathmate will tell you one to three inches, but the general consensus seem to be half an inch up to 3 inches. Incorporating a jelqing and stretching routine will drastically improve the speed results are seen. Bathmate makes pumps to accommodate up to 9.8 inches in length, so with an intense routine followed daily, 9.8 inches is a possibility.

What are the physical dimensions of the Bathmate?

Four different pumps by Bathmate exists.  Their sizes are as follows:

  • Hercules: 8.5 Length x 5.9 Girth
  • Hydromax x30: 7.08 Length x 5.68 Girth
  • Hydromax x40: 8.46 Length x 6.91 Girth
  • Goliath: 9.84 Length x 7.72 Girth

Can Bathmate be used outside of water?

Yes. If pumping without water, be sure to pump slower and use lubrication.

What lubricants are safe to use with Bathmate?

Bathmate can be used with any lubricant, both silicone based and water based.

How long should I be pumping with Bathmate?

15-30 minute intervals are best, never going over 30 minutes without removing the pump to restore natural blood flow.

Is Bathmate the best solution for increasing my size?

No. Bathmate focuses strictly on girth, and while length gains are fairly common- they are also very small. To the tune of half an inch or less.  Use the bathmate for gaining girth, Length gains can be obtained from stretching exercises or devices.

What if my penis is 5 inches or less? Will this pump fit me?

Yes, Bathmate has multiple sizes.  For 5 inches or less, the HydroMax x30 should be used.

Which Bathmate model is the best one for me?

The primary consideration should be starting length and girth. Secondarily consider price range.

  • Hercules – Under 8 Inches and Price is an issue.
  • Hydromax x30 – Under 7 Inches and Comfort is important.
  • Hydromax x40-Under 78.5 Inches and Comfort is important.
  • Goliath – Over 8.5 Inches.

How is the Bathmate cleaned?

A cleaning kit is provided with the Bathmate Xtreme, and the same cleaning kit can be purchased (not expensive) for the non Xtreme models.  Soap and water, and a soft rag will suffice without the cleaning kit.  Avoid rough sponges and thick bristled dish scrubbers as this can scratch the plastic cylinder.

What is included when I order?

The Xtreme includes a carrying case, cleaning kit, ruler, towels, manual, and hand grip.  Non Xtreme Pumps include the pump itself, and a manual.

How can I contact the Bathmate Corporation?

Bathmate is sold by several different online retailers. I recommend purchasing from BathmateDirect- They are reachable via;

  • Email: info (at) umproducts.com
  • Phone: +44 01924 482420

Are the “BathBuddy”, and “Bathmate” pumps sold on eBay legit?

No. Bathmate clones are rampant on ebay and amazon, and are not manufactured to the same standards. This means vacuum pressure is likely uneven, and the tubes are thinner and could possibly crack.  No warranty is provided with these cheap imitations, despite the promise of a money back guarantee.  Avoid these ripoff products.
