Shark Tank Hydromax Update

Hydromax update

  • Entrepreneur: Chris Spencer
  • Business: Hydration system for football players
  • Ask: $50,000 for 25% equity
  • Result: $50,000 for 50% equity
  • Shark: Jeff Foxworthy

Founder of Hydromax, Chris, walks into the tank accompanied by Ethan, a child football player. He demonstrates in detail how his patented hydration system works, and then asks Ethan to show the product off too.

With a long straw, and bite valve, the player can quickly get drinks between plays. The unit holds up to 16 ounces of water or sports drink, and straps into the players shoulder pads.

He says a leading danger in sports is that kids run around in the heat and can die without proper hydration. He wants his product to change this.

Each Hydromax system retails for $49.99, and costs $8.50 to manufacture. When asked about sales, Chris says that he had sales in 2007 totaling $100,000, before returning to corporate America, with a new career.

Guest shark Jeff Foxworthy cracks a funny joke about filling the Hydromax with whiskey and putting it inside suits. This gets some good laughs inside the tank.

At this point in the pitch, Kevin O’Leary speaks up. He wants someone who can put all of his effort into the company, so for this reason, he is out.

Also not interested is Daymond John. Because he has concerns regarding the valuation, he goes out.

Likewise, Barbara Corcoran says that she doesn’t have the time it will take to get this business up and running. Plus, she doesn’t have the right contacts either, so she too is out.

This left Jeff Foxworthy and Robert as the only sharks still in play.

Robert Herjavec says that the product is clever, however, he thinks that Chris needs to hustle to get the product out into the world. He doesn’t want in, so for these reasons, he is out.

Guest shark Jeff Foxworthy, offers $50,000 for 50% equity, and Chris quickly accepts the deal.

Chris leaves Shark Tank triumphant, but did things ultimately work out for him? Keep reading our Hydromax update to find out what happened following the show.

Our Hydromax update shows that Chris’ deal with Jeff never happened. Despite this, the company is doing well.

The product is now being used by players on the Dallas Cowboys, the San Diego Chargers, and at Pop Warner High School. They’re also used by several colleges.

Further, their yearly revenue is reported to be $2 million. You can check the system out on the Hydromax website. There’s even an endorsement there by Sammy Davis.
