How To Use Bathmate HydroMax Pump?

The bathmate hydro penis pump can be use in 3 different ways; shower, bath tub and even on air. The first two ways work efficiently while the third one is not recommended as using the pump on air only is not an efficient way. The video below will demonstrate how to use the pump while on the shower while using in the bath tub will be explained further down.

Using The In The Tub

  1. Fill the bath tub with hot water enough to cover the waist when seated. Bath and relax for at least 5 minutes to allow the area around the testicles to become loose. Keep in mind, do not use the pump while within this relaxation period. The 5 minute period dedicated to relaxation allows achieve maximum comfort when pumping.
  2. Loosen the penis by applying a slight foreplay prior to inserting into the pump. Then, submerged the pump allowing water to fill completely. Once filled, insert flaccid penis into the pump while keeping it submerged.
  3. Carefully position the sealing ring on the beveled area at the based of the testicles. Doing so reduces pressure applied to the testicles and allowing the pump to seal fully against the pelvis. Also, make sure the penis is evenly positioned inside the pump. Hold back the testicles making sure it is comfortable prior to compressing or pumping the Bathmate.
  4. Push or pump the Bathmate towards the pelvis a few times to begin building up the vacuum inside the pump. During the pumping, excess water will be released onto the pressure valve. Normally, a vacuum is created with 4 to 5 pumps or until no excess water is released. At this point, just relax as it indicates optimum vacuum is achieved.
  5. When the vacuum starts to decrease, pump the Bathmate back to achieve optimum pressure. On the other hand, if the pressure is too much, pressing the pressure valve lightly will release pressure.
  6. Release the pressure by depressing the pressure valve release after 15 to 20 minutes of using the pump. Releasing the pressure and removing the pump can be done while standing in order to see noticeable results at once.

Maintenance and Cleaning Instructions

Just like with any devices, the bathmate series hydro penis pumps need maintenance and cleaning. Although, the pumps with materials designed to last, regular maintenance and cleaning can make it last and maintain the optimum performance of the device. Cleaning the pump is easy. Watch the video below to have a clear picture about how to clean the pump.

Using Bathmate Pump With Manual Exercises and Other PE Devices

Penis enlargement beginners might not know about this, but penis pumps like Bathmate is a perfect companion for manual exercises such as stretching and Jelqing, or used in conjunction with a traction penis extenders like SizeGenetics, MaleEdge, or PeniMaster PRO. In fact, combining all these amazing PE routines makes achieving permanent gains a lot quicker than doing them individually.

Whether you have heard or not, there is routine called DLD girth blaster popularized by Mike of MOS. In this routine, stretching is used for warming up the penis and scrotum by performing the stretches for 3 minutes. Then, perform the SSJ(slow squash Jelqs) to remove water retention during the pumping routine. Later, SizeGenetics routine is implemented wearing it for 3 hours with breaks every hour.

What Results To Expect

There is no doubt Bathmate is an excellent penis pump that delivers results. However, never expect gains overnight. Although, using the Bathmate for the first time seems to have an immediate impact in growth, real and noticeable results can be achieved in months. Depending in usage, there are those who have gained .25 inch in the period of 4 months while others were able to gain as much as 1 inch with regular pumping for 1 to 2 years. That gain we are talking about is the length. However, with girth, it seems to be a different story. With girth, there are those who were able to gain as much as .5 of an inch within the period of 4 to 5 months. Although, keep in mind that bathmate can give your penis instant increase in size, and this size gain is usable instantly. That means, prior to having sex, one can perform a hydro pumping routine to gain size.

However, this particular gain is not permanent, yet. To achieve a substantial size gains, one must perform the routine regularly. This can be compared perfectly just as going to the gym and perform body workouts. After the workouts, muscle gains is very noticeable, but the gains can only last for a certain time. To make the gains permanent, one must undergo constant and regular training. Penis enlargement using hydro pumping works in the same concept as body building.

Bathmate Before and After Results Photos

To maximize results overtime, follow the manufacturer’s recommended routine and perform it regularly as stated. To be fooled by those who tell they have gained an inch in a period of 3 months or less. Penis enlargement through pumping alone is a slow process, but the gains are permanent, yet only rewarded to those who perform the routine consistently and seriously. While there are Bathmate uses who were able to gain an increase quicker than usual expected time, other methods were used along with pumping such as exercises and traction extenders.

How and Where To Buy Bathmate Hydromax?

The Bathmate can be purchase online only. To be certain you are getting the original Bathmate, purchase online at the Official Bathmate Hydromax Online Store. Nevertheless, the Bathmate series along with its accessories are also available at Bathmate Direct Store. With regards to discount or coupon code, there is none at this time. Saving or bookmarking this page can be a great idea as this will be updated from time-to-time and post any coupon codes available for your discounts.

Final Thoughts

Water pumps like the Bathmate provide a gentler means of penis enlargement compare to air vacuum pumps. It gives much greater tissue expansion and much less fluid retention. When doing penis pumping, the pressure should not bring water retention or swelling. Instead, it should give tissue expansion, and hydro pumps are truly effective of achieving it as it draws the blood so much quicker due to higher pressure.

Keep in mind, results will depend on consistency and dedication of using the pump. Furthermore, to avoid injury and other negative outcomes, follow Bathmate’s recommended routine especially if you are a beginner. Never be tempted to jump to higher pressure and expect quick results. Do it slowly and steadily instead. There are certain advanced means of pumping or routines, but do not go over them until the penis is ready.

Bathmate Pumps With Accessories

Most people use pumps to increase girth solely. However, Bathmate is an effective hydro pump that can let one achieve gains in both girth and length. Pumping is a very powerful means of pulling out the hidden length of the penis inside the body, and at the same time it is effective in expanding the tunica, glands resulting to a hard and full erections.

Lastly, another great thing about hydro pumping, the size gained right after doing the routine is useable. As mentioned earlier, it provides gain right after the first use. Therefore, you can do pumping and have sex right after doing the routine. That gain is usable for sex right at that instant. Of course, this initial gain is not permanent. However, as you continue performing the routine regularly, the gains can be permanent.

Last Minute Tips For Efficient Use Of Bathmate Hydro Pump

Now that you know the Bathmate’s potential, science behind, and how it works, it is time to make use of it to your advantage. In order to be successful in penis enlargement, you should have goals. This principle works really well in every aspect in life including penis enlargement.

Setting Penis Enlargement Goals With Bathmate Pump

The reason to have goals is to have something to work towards on, and without any goals, it simply like traveling without a destination. This means, you won’t get to your destination, or in this case, achieve permanent and cemented gains. Therefore, begin pondering about what size you want to achieve. If possible, put it in writing and put where you can see it visibly every time.

This will serve as your constant reminders motivating you to do the routines on a regular basis. For instance, let us see if your goal is to achieve 8 inches in length and 6 inches in girth. Current size would be 7.5 inches in length and 5.5 inches in girth. That means you are off half an inch off your goal. Here is how to do it, and feel free to modify to whatever is convenience and realistic for you. Here are a few tips;

  1. Set your ultimate goal at the back of your mind, or better put it in writing. If you have a smartphone, put it there and read it very often.
  2. Breakdown your ultimate goals into smaller chunks and make more realistic and attainable very easily. For instance, you could set .2 inch of length gains every 2 months, and .2 inch of girth gains in 4 to 6 months. Make the girth timeframe in your goal longer as girth is harder to achieved than length gains.
  3. Make yourself a progress journal to monitor your progress.
  4. Perform progressive intensity routines as you progresses. Whenever the current routine begins to slow down gains, revise the routine towards higher intensity, or perhaps a different set of new routines.
  5. Belief and faith are essential on what you are doing. Have faith in it. This is where the majority give up easily as they do not believe what they do is actually making progress. They simply do not have the patience. In penis enlargement, one must have patience, persistence and dedication to following through the routine until noticeable gains is achieved. Hence, keep that in mind. It is crucial.
  6. Be thankful in each little gains you have achieved. This little gains can motivate you towards gaining more than what you have achieved, so far.

Readers Comments, Discussions and Questions


    I have a penis size 3 inch normal and 4.6 inch long erection , I want enlargement very long 6-7 inch

    • Delbert says

      Depending on your culture or ethnicity, your size maybe normal. However, I’ve seen such starting size grows up to over 5 inches to 6 inches through consistent penis enlargement routines…of course including penis enlargement pump like the bathmate. If this is your first time doing it, I suggest and I think many will agree with me to get off to a manual routine first. It sort of saying testing the waters first…getting your feet wet and once you’re into it, make more aggressive and use pump or penis extender. If you’re already into manual routines, please tell us what have you done so far…do you do it consistently or sporadically?

  2. jamesexell says

    I’ve been lurking on a lot of forums including this site and I’ve decided to to with X40. The xtreme version is tempting, but I guess it’s too much for me at this time.

  3. Zach says

    I got confused initially when I checked bathmate pumps as why there are so many choices and names. However, I’ve realized the pumps have different sizes, pressure capacity and even freebies. Thanks for clearing that out.

  4. Funley says

    I’ve been checking from different choices regarding bathmate because I’m very interested in getting it and will be using it along with my jelqing and stretching. It’s been awhile that I’ve been doing manual routines, and I think it’s time to take my goals to the next level. I choose bathmate pump because it simply my preferred one. :) Honestly, I can’t tell how it different or is it better than Penomet or otherwise, but based on reviews I’ve read from different sources, both works well and it’s just mostly a matter of preference. Don’t worry, once I have it and got experience with it, I’ll be back for feedback.

  5. Thantly says

    Great guide here, and thank you for putting all the bathmate pump specs/description in one page. It’s easier to compare what fits, and in my case, I went ahead and purchased the X40.

  6. Rackz says

    I was thinking of getting a Hercules, too…but I think it’s worth getting the X40 all the way.

  7. kilq577887 says

    When I first started penis enlargement a year ago, bathmate has always been my first choice, but didn’t decide to get one until recently.

  8. Ralf says

    Do bathmate accepts trade in? This maybe ridiculous but I’m just asking as the guy who left from the apartment I’m living right now forgot to bring or intentionally left a hercules pump. I can tell it’s hercules based on its appearance and comparing it to hercules photos.

  9. willrake875 says

    While most are eager to get the new bathmate, which is not unusual… I did ordered hercules because it fits exactly to my needs and to my current size. Hopefully, with consistent effort and dedication I can max out the hercules and I would be glad to upgrade to a bigger and more powerful pump like X30 or X40.

  10. Bants1938 says

    Upgrade time…. :) I’ve got Hercules long time ago and I think it’s time to move on to a bigger and more powerful X40. I checked the xtreme model but it’s just too big for me right now. I wish bathmate incorporate a hand pump on either or both X30/X40 pumps.

  11. Bon says

    Hey, I was just checking penis pumps 2 days ago and I wonder how it helpful it would be to increase my erection hardness and stamina. I’m currently at 7.5 inches penis size and it might not be a good idea to increase bigger penis size when it comes to size-wise for women. I have no issue with my wife about the size, but I’m a bit worried about the hardness as sometimes it is not as hard as I wanted although it’s enough for penetration.

    I’m looking forward to experimenting using X40 which fits my size…of course if size increase is possible, that would a big bonus for me :) And, as far as my wife is concern, she is OK with it and we’ve already discussed it. So, it won’t be an issue anymore and I don’t have to hide what I’ll be doing.

    Thank you for listing the detailed specs for all models. Great read and have a nice day!

  12. Sammy says

    I’m still in love with my Hercules, but it looks like it’s time to get a bigger and better one like X40. There is almost no more room for growth. I’ve had Hercules for almost 2 years now and have gain good girth as well as length. From almost 5 inches initially to 5.6 currently. I don’t do much routine as those hard core guys I do it a few times a week for 15-20 minutes routine only.

  13. pete says

    With all the searching about more info about bathmate I finally decided to get one for me. the xtreme is too big for me, so i’m getting the x30. In fact, I’ve tried ordering it online using a pre-paid master gift card, but some issues when entering the information, but one way or another will get it anyway.

  14. Callum says

    Finally, I come to a decision in which I will be upgrading my Hercules to Hydromax X40. Yes! It did worked for me. I was kinda excited when I decide to bought the Hercules but there was only a little room for growth. Now, I’ve finally made it to a point where I need a bigger room for growth.
