It’s been some time since I reviewed the Bathmate Hydromax 7. To my great delight, Bathmate got in touch to send us their Bathmate HydroXtreme (formally Bathmate Hydromax Xtreme). They sent us the product for free in return for a non-biased, honest review. And if you’ve read any of my other pump reviews, you’ll know I’m not afraid of being honest. I was a little worried about the pump being too powerful for me (it’s not) but I agreed to review it and do a 2 month test.
The Bathmate HydroXtreme arrived in discrete packaging. Which is a good thing because my next door neighbour received the parcel before giving it to me. He had no idea. Inside the discrete box, was another big box with some nice Bathmate graphics. Some of you will appreciate the graphics because it could make a nice gift for example.
I pulled out a black fabric case and took a few minutes to admire it before looking inside. Inside was the pump itself, the comfort pad, the hand pump, pipe, towel, shower strap, padlock, cleaning rods and ruler. I kept saying “wow” to Eve while pulling out all of the different things. Apparently these things come with all of the Xtreme pumps (which I didn’t realise before).
The ruler was going to be especially helpful and I quite liked the idea of the little towel. Why would you need a little towel? Because my friend, you will be spending some time in the shower and will want to dry one of your hands so that you can play on your phone and set timers. The padlock to lock the pump case is an especially nice touch.
There is one thing that Bathmate could consider adding to their already impressive range of products with the Xtreme… a timer. It would be really great to have a timer suitable for using in a wet environment.
To remind you, Bathmate pumps come in several sizes and you should use their size guidelines at Bathmate Direct to decide which size pump is best for you. The HydroXtreme model comes in the following sizes, helpfully illustrated by the use of carrots:
Each pump size is a different price. The prices are listed at the end of this review.
Bathmate also still offer a 60 day, no questions money back guarantee. You can also still extend the included 2 year warranty to a lifetime warranty if you wish, which is pretty awesome.
My first experience using the Bathmate HydroXtreme was far better than my first time using their Hydromax. For a starters, the comfort pad inside the Xtreme actually seals against my body, whereas the Hydromax’s rarely would. Secondly, the Bathmate HydroXtreme is by far the most comfortable bellows penis pump I have used, due to the hand pump.
The hand pump on the Bathmate HydroXtreme is really what makes the product in my opinion. I always had a dislike of pressing other pumps against my body because sometimes that hurts. With the hand pump on the Xtreme, the pumping process is far smoother. I place the pump over my penis and immediately start using the hand pump. It is much faster, far easier and it doesn’t cause me pain.
The hand pump can be attached in two different ways:
The other thing I like is that the hand pump makes pumping without water easier. Sometimes I use the pump while in bed and find it very easy with the hand pump. Other water pump models like the Hydromax 7 were too much of a pain to use without water.
So just to sumarrise Bathmate HydroXtreme is:
- Easier to use in the shower than other models.
- More comfortable than other pumps.
- Faster to use than others.
- Easier to use out of water than other water pumps (due to the hand pump).
When using the Bathmate HydroXtreme in the shower, I found the seal against my body better than with the Hydromax. Even when comparing the use of both pumps without the comfort pads. The seal on my Hydromax would start leaking a little water after about 10 minutes whereas with the Bathmate Xtreme that was never an issue. The only time water would leak from the seal against my skin would be if I moved around a lot (like walking out of the shower etc).
What I disliked most was releasing pressure from the valve after sessions. Like the Hydromax 7, which has a different designed valve, the Bathmate HydroXtreme is designed to release pressure too quickly for my liking. I think this is deliberate, so that pressure can be released very quickly if you are in pain. However it means that releasing pressure slowly is more difficult. Releasing pressure slowly is always my goal to avoid bruising my penis.
The accessories are all great (incl. the new shower strap) but I believe the ruler could be better. The unfortunate thing about the ruler is that the zero measurement isn’t at the very edge. Therefore when measuring my penis with the ruler I have to add half an inch to the measurement, which isn’t ideal. It would be far better if the zero line began at the very end of the ruler (right on the edge).
Like all other water based pumps, this one doesn’t come with a pressure gauge, so you are accepting some level of risk by using it. I also still disagree with the idea of putting a ruler on a bellows pump that by nature changes length when the silicon compresses. Please read my article “the downsides of water based pumps” to inform yourselves on other potential dangers of these pumps.
Yes I wrote about it in my Hydromax review and it’s even more important here. DO NOT OVER PUMP. The Bathmate HydroXtreme is the most powerful water penis pump you can buy. You’re not going to break your cock in half like our poor carrot here, however you can do some serious harm to your penis if you aren’t careful. All Bathmate pumps are designed to reach safe maximum pressure ranges. However that doesn’t mean you can go straight to maximum pressure. I repeat, do not over pump. You need only type in penis pump or bathmate injuries to google to reinforce what I am saying here.
One of my biggest surprises when I first started using water pumps was that I needed to shave around my penis and go for the bald look, which I didn’t particularly appreciate at the time. However now I can tell you… it really isn’t so bad. It’s easier for your partner to go down on you when you have no pubes and when you get used to shaving, it’s really not so bad.
You can find some air pumps that you don’t need to shave for however I don’t recommend them because they are usually not made of body safe materials. Because in order not to shave you need a very soft and flexible rubber like material – and that kind of material is almost never body-safe. You’ll be able to find out more about safe sex toy materials by doing a search online. Anyway, all Bathmate products are made of body safe plastics and silicone so you don’t need to worry with BM.
When I first started using Bathmate I bought my own Hydromax. I had many safety concerns and questions, all of which the Bathmate team responded to with the upmost respect. Let’s not forget about their 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee or the 2 year warranty that comes with every pump either.
What I also like about Bathmate is that they encourage safe pumping practices, unlike the majority of other companies. Even when I asked Bathmate privately if 2 – 5 minutes is really the maximum time I should use a pump for before taking a break, they stuck to their safety first approach. After reading one my articles on this website, a Bathmate employee even contacted me and reminded me never to overdo it with the pumping. Truly great customer service.
“After 2 months, 81% reported better erections or larger penises” – A Bathmate Survey
I added 0.4 inches in length to my penis using the Bathmate HydroXtreme over 2 months and 0.3 inches in girth, which I’m extra happy about. Quite impressive when considering that I’ve been using penis pumps for several years now.
I performed this Bathmate HydroXtreme test a little differently to when I reviewed the Hydromax and Penomet. I was tired of using other user’s regimes and taking measurements every time I used the pumps. I decided to simplify things so that I could be more consistent and give a more real world use.
This time I used the pump 2 – 3 times per week for only 10 minutes at each session. I entered the pump flaccid each time and on some weeks forgot to use it or only used it once. I measured at the end of each month rather than every time I used it. So this test is definitely more similar to how the casual user would go about using a penis pump.
Bathmate only recommends using the pump for 2 – 3 mintutes at a time in their user manual. So obviously you should follow their advice rather than anybody else’s.
Cleaning the Bathmate HydroXtreme 7 is easy though because of the extra parts (hand pump etc) it takes a little more time than the Hydromax did.
You have to be sure to clean this or any other pump you use after every single use. Not just with water but with an appropriate sex toy cleaner. Believe me, it isn’t nice to get a bacterial infection on your penis because of bad pump cleaning. I used to just rinse pumps with water, however after having several infections I decided to use actual cleaning product every time instead. Bathmate sells their own cleaning product however I personally just use a general use sex toy cleaning spray.
The Bathmate HydroXtreme is by far the most impressive penis pump I have used. It is comfortable, easy to use and like the Hydromax it increased the size of my penis. Whats more, because of the hand pump on the Xtreme it is easier to use outside of the shower. So it is no longer necessary for me to take regular long showers in order to use the pump. For me this means more consistency. I find it easier to stick to a regular routine with the Bathmate HydroXtreme than with other pumps.
As always, I wish these pumps would contain a pressure gauge instead of a useless ruler on the side. I also wish Bathmate would make releasing pressure slowly easier.
That being said, I strongly recommend the Bathmate HydroXtreme if you are shopping for a new penis pump. Don’t let the word ‘Xtreme’ scare you off. This pump is safe to use and is actually far more comfortable to use for me than the Hydromax.
The price difference between Hydromax and HydroXtreme is substantial. Is it worth it? Well it really depends on where your financial priorities lie. If you have the money to spend, the HydroXtreme is totally worth it. It is a joy to use and for me the difference in experience is good enough to pay that much extra. That combined with all of the accessories for me makes it worthwhile. As I’ve eluded to it could be improved, however I consider the Bathmate HydroXtreme the best water pump currently available.
You should buy the HydroXtreme and all other penis pumps by Bathmate from their official website. DO NOT buy the pumps from unofficial websites, because there are a lot of rip-offs around. Plus, if you buy your pump from the official website you get a 60 day money back guarantee, which is pretty damn cool in my opinion.
