Bathmate vs Hydromax. Which one should you buy?

2018/07 Update: The Bathmate company has recently renamed their line up. There are three versions only and they are called:

Bathmate Hydro (Bathmate / Bathmate Hercules), Hydromax (Hydromax X-Series), HydroXtreme (Hydromax Xtreme)

If you are looking for a water pump for penis enlargement, you must have known about Bathmate and Hydromax. It is a penis pump to increase your penis length and girth, and is used in bath.


The pumps from Bathmate and Hydromax have very similar appearance. I was so confused about these penis pumps so I spent some time to make it clear about the differences between them.


(2018/07: Now called Hydro)

Bathmate is the original penis water pump. There were two variants, Hercules and Goliath during launch but now only the former is still available to get. (Renamed. It is now called Bathmate Hydro)

At the time this post is publised, the original Bathmate Hercules (Now called Bathmate Hydro) can be bought at US$110 with three color choices. However, you should also get the value pack to the cart, giving you more accessories for better comfort, safety and effectiveness.

The value pack contains:

  • Measuring Gauge
  • Towel
  • Shower Strap
  • Capsule Case
  • Cleaning Brush
  • Bathmate Clean


You can still buy the Bathmate Hercules from the official website but the cost-performance ratio is not as good as the Hydromax series.

Hydromax X series

(2018/07: Now called Hydromax)

Hydromax is a revamp of the brand. It is not just a revamp on the appearance, but also improved performance, safety and comfort.

Major Improvements over Bathmate Hydro:

  • It features a newly designed bellows pump which gives 35% stronger pumping power than the Bathmate Hydro.
  • The comfort pad is upgraded to a removable pad. The pressure can be maintained even better with a comfort experience.
  • The valve is improved to prevent water from escaping when filling the pump.


Similar to the Hydro series, the bundle offer is also a must-buy item for the Hydromax.

The value pack contains (same as above):

  • Measuring Gauge
  • Towel
  • Shower Strap
  • Capsule Case
  • Cleaning Brush
  • Bathmate Clean


With the value pack, the total price for the Hydromax is comparable to the Hydro series. So it is worth taking a look at the HydroXtreme series below.


Hydromax Xtreme

(2018/07: Now called HydroXtreme)

HydroXtreme series is the latest lineup for the brand. The hydro penis pump is further upgraded for serious men who want to enlarge their penis.

Enhancements for the HydroXtreme

  • Detachable handball pump – giving you precise control of hydro pressure.
  • Removable comfort insert – redesigned part for maximum comfort.
  • Shower strap for your convenience.

Unlike the Hydro and Hydromax, all models in the HydroXtreme lineup comes with a complete range of accessories to help you fully utilize the pump.

The accessory pack includes:

  • Carry case
  • Measuring Gauge (Important! prevent injury)
  • Cleaning Sponge
  • Handball pump
  • Hose attachment
  • Comfort insert pad
  • Lube
  • Security lock
  • Shower strap

The HydroXtreme series is no doubt the best water pump from the brand and it comes with a complete accessory pack which makes it the winner among the three.

In my opinion, if you are looking for a hydro penis pump, the HydroXtreme pump is the best choice.


Official website

There are two official websites (Marketing reasons?). I have confirmed with the official marketing team.

All other websites selling Bathmate and Hydromax are fake. There are also cheap listings on eBay or Amazon, or some China marketplaces. They could be selling counterfeit products which are of low quality and may hurt your penis.

Instead, getting the genuine Bathmate or Hydromax comes with 2 year warranty and 60 days money back guarantee. So think twice!
