Counterfeit Bathmate Pumps
As our Bathmate products are growing ever more popular among men worldwide, cheap imitation counterfeits are steadily emerging onto the scene. These counterfeit Bathmate products are cheaply made in unsanitary conditions, utilising inferior quality materials and severely lacking the necessary quality control.
We are in a constant battle with counterfeit manufacturers/sellers, and have been for several years. Removing counterfeit Bathmates from e-commerce sites has become a part of our daily activities. We have also successfully staged raids to seize and destroy counterfeit pumps. Striving to reduce the availability of counterfeit pumps is a high priority for us, as they are marring our reputation when consumers confuse them for our safe and legitimate Bathmate pumps. We want our customers’ experiences with Bathmate to be positive.
Why should I avoid counterfeits?
Health Risk – Dangerous to use
The main reason you would want to avoid using counterfeits is simply that it is not worth the risk to your health. The materials used are unclean and not skin-safe – do you really want to expose the intimate regions of your body to unhygienic and potentially hazardous materials? The risk of infection alone is a big enough reason to stay clear of counterfeit pumps.
Ineffective – They do not work
The second reason to avoid using a counterfeit Bathmate is effectiveness – or specifically, a lack thereof. We have obtained numerous counterfeit Bathmate pumps over the years, and each time they have been put through the same tests as our pumps. Every time, the counterfeits failed our pressure tests. It is very seldom that the counterfeit pumps even pass the low pressure test, let alone the high pressure test. This is due to poorly constructed valves and gaiters.
Counterfeit Bathmates also suffer from very poor durability. The counterfeit pumps failed miserably in our drop tests, shattering into several sharp pieces, which could be dangerous if it happened to a user in the shower. The valve is also particularly susceptible to breaking, rendering the pump unusable and unable to retain pressure.
Customer Support – Put simply, there isn’t any
The third important reason to avoid counterfeit Bathmates is a lack of customer support. Purchasing a counterfeit pump means you are void of any warranty with us and it is highly likely that you will not receive support from the counterfeit seller.
It wouldn’t be logical to buy a counterfeit pump, almost certainly doomed to failure, when the supplier of it is not interesting in providing customer support.
How do I know if I have a counterfeit?
If you have any cause to believe you don't have a genuine product, then contact our support team. They will ask for some basic info on your pump, and then run a quick, simple test that will tell us if you have a genuine pump or not.
Removing counterfeit products from e-commerce sites and physical stores has become a part of our daily activities. We have also successfully staged raids to seize and destroy counterfeit pumps. It is illegal to sell counterfeit products, however, fraudulent counterfeiters continually attempt to exploit the Bathmate brand and benefit from the fame and worldwide success we have achieved. Therefore, we safeguard our intellectual property rights by all available means, including comprehensive surveillance and registration, so that you can remain confident that your Bathmate product is authentic and lives up to our high quality standards.
We take serious action on a local level, as well as internationally, to stop counterfeiting of our products, and we strongly believe that our efforts will decrease the amount of infringers attempting to mislead you into believing that you are buying authentic Bathmate products, but what us the real impact of purchasing a counterfeit pump?
When purchasing illegitimate products, you are unknowingly contributing to undermining responsible Health and Safety practices. The producers and sellers of fake products rarely, if at all, follow the strict standards which are put in place through law, which prohibit forced labour and workers rights. It is our honest assumption that counterfeit producers are known not to pay taxes, duties or customs fees, in accordance to the law. They pay a sheer disregard in the production of safe and sanitary products, knowingly using toxic, harmful substances.
All Bathmate products are manufactured from specially selected phthalate free, skin-safe and medical grade materials, and each range has undergone a custom designed dermatological testing study undertaken by a world renowned specialist clinic. Aspen Clinical Research have conclusively passed our Hydropumps as clinically proven to be safe for use on the genital area. You can be assured that Bathmate Hydropumps are safe to use, unlike counterfeit pumps.
Furthermore, illegitimate retailers rarely offer ongoing customer service. By purchasing from an authorised Bathmate retailer, your purchase is protected by our warranty policy and you can benefit from our customer service and after sales support.
