Water penis pumps are one of the most innovative and groundbreaking additions to the penis pumping world.

A water penis pump is a vacuum device used to treat erectile dysfunction and enlarge your penis that uses water as the medium for pumping.

Water penis pumps are the same as traditional air penis pumps, except they are waterproof, made of water-resistant materials, and use water as their medium.

How a Water Penis Pump Works

A water penis pump uses hydrotherapy and vacuum functionality to achieve or maintain an erection, and enlarge your penis.

In a nutshell, the user fills the pump chamber with warm water, places the water-filled chamber over his penis, and then slowly pumps water out of the chamber to create a vacuum that draws blood into the penis in order to create, maintain, or enlarge an erection.

A water penis pump works in the same fundamental way that a traditional air penis pump does, except it uses water instead of air.

Water Penis Pump Benefits

There are many benefits to using a water penis pump. They provide a comfortable and gentler pumping experience, the pumping effect is more evenly distributed, and discomfort and the risk of injury is decreased. Let's take a look at how these benefits improve your pumping sessions and gains.

Comfortable Pumping Experience

Water penis pumps use water as their pumping medium and most men opt to use warm water to surround their penis in the chamber.

Warm water provides a soothing and comfortable pumping experience especially since pumping at higher pressures can be a bit uncomfortable at times.

The warmth of the water is also beneficial for pumping as it dilates blood vessels, improves blood flow, and relaxes muscles better.


Another major benefit of water penis pumps is that they are waterproof (duh) and therefore can be used in the bathtub or shower while you're getting ready without damaging the device. If you live with roommates, parents or a significant other, you can lock the bathroom door as if you're washing up and use your penis pump in privacy.

Optimized Results

Using water as the pumping medium can also lead to more optimal and uniform results due to water's properties. Water distributes pressure equally in all directions, so when your penis is submerged in water being pumped, the pressure will be distributed evenly across all areas.

Water also maintains a consistent pressure throughout the pumping session as long as the penis is submerged. This prevents any specific area from receiving a localized high pressure or suction and potential injury, discomfort, or bruising.

Water Penis Pump Disadvantages

There are some disadvantages with using a water penis pump such as messiness, time consumption, and maintenance requirements.


When using an air penis pump, you don't need to worry about spilling the air. However when using a water penis pump, you do have to worry about spilling the water either before, during, or after a pumping session.

One way to avoid this messiness issue is using a water pump in the bathtub or shower while you are getting ready in the bathroom, so it doesn't matter if water spills into the tub during a pumping session.

Time Consumption

Water penis pumps will generally require more time than air penis pumps. You'll have to fill the cylinder with water, the device contains more parts to assemble, and you'll probably need more time to setup the pumping environment.

However it shouldn't require much more time than an air penis pump. You'll need to throw down a towel if you're water pumping on a sofa or chair, and you'll need to spend an extra couple minutes filling the cylinder and ensuring a tight seal to prevent leakage.

Maintenance Requirements

After using a water penis pump you will want to disassemble the device and dry the parts as much as possible. Ideally, you will also let the parts air dry for a couple hours before packing and storing them to prevent any mold or mildew from building up. This can present some problems if you live with other people and don't want to leave your male enhancement products sitting out on the bathroom counter.

The best solution and what we do, is hand dry them with a towel as much as possible and when you store them, leave the zipper or lid of the base open a little bit to allow the parts to continue air drying as much as possible in their storage location.

Waterproof Ratings for Penis Pumps

Penis pumps that are labeled as waterproof receive a rating that signifies their level of water resistance. This is important so users can operate and pump while taking a shower or bath.

The IP rating scale ranges from a 0 (no protection against water) to an 8 (highest level of protection against water).

Most penis pumps receive an IPX7 waterproof rating that indicates a high level of water resistance, particularly in the context of their electronic components and electric pump mechanisms. Pump devices with the IPX7 rating are capable of withstanding immersion in water up to 1 meter of water depth for up to 30 minutes without sustaining damage.

Are Water Penis Pumps Better Than Air Penis Pumps?

Water penis pumps are not necessarily better or worse than traditional air penis pumps - they are simply different and may be better or worse depending on your circumstances and goals.

If you have more time on your hands and live alone, are an experienced pumper, put more value on comfort and uniform pumping, then a water penis pump is probably a great option for you.

The best approach is to actually have one water penis pump and one air penis pump to use in different situations.

Water Penis Pumps Conclusion

The innovation and addition of water penis pumps to the penis enlargement world is exciting and inspiring.

It shows us that the penis enlargement niche is in its nascent stage and just getting started, and we have a lot more to look forward to.

Already, manufacturers are coming out with dual water/air penis pumps for users to use in any environment they choose. There are also electric water penis pumps which is a combination many thought would be impossible due to the electrical circuits of the motor.

In the future we can expect to see new innovations and inventions such as sensors on penis pumps that can determine the exact amount of pressure to use for your goals, improved comfort via softer and more flexible materials, and smart penis pumps that can integrate with our phones and devices.

The future of penis pumping and penis enlargement is bright, and water penis pumps are simply a small step on this long journey, no pun intended.
