Frequently Asked Questions


Do you have a battery-operated device?
No. When the Vacurect was developed we wanted to make it as simple to use as possible. You control the rate of the vacuum pressure and you do not have to worry about drained batteries and insufficient vacuum pressure.

Why choose the Vacurect over other systems?
The Vacurect is the easiest to use vacuum erection device on the market. There is no assembly process, no stretching of a rubber band ring, no trimming of the pubic hair and no constant changing of batteries. If you are looking for a product that works on a moment’s notice, achieves and maintains full rigid erections then you found the solution with the Vacurect.

How do I know what size tension ring to use?
You will start with the largest size tension system and work your way down until you find the size that will best maintain the erection.

How long before I need to replace my tension ring?
Each tension ring is designed to last 2-3 years, depending on how often it is used. 

Is this a penis pump?
Technically, yes this is a penis pump. However, this is a medical grade vacuum erection device registered with the FDA in the USA and the CE in Europe and is much more effective than any other penis pump. 

What type of lubricant can I use?
We recommend that you use a water based personal lubricant when using the Vacurect. 

Does Medical Aid cover vacuum erection devices?
No. Unfortunately not, but as the Vacurect is developed and manufactured in South Africa, it is the most affordable solution for your erection problems. It is a once off expense and you will be able to use it for many years as it is of excellent quality. It also carries a 3-year warranty in South Africa.
