In the late 1970's TARBY identified a need for better service to progressive cavity pump users and began manufacturing an extensive line of replacement parts. In 1980, Tarby became an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of complete pumps for industrial and municipal applications.

In 1995, TARBY introduced the VORTEX Progressive Cavity Grinder Pump. The V-1000 was designed specifically to answer the many problems in the handling of home and small business wastewater.

In 2000, Vortex Pump Company was established and purchased TARBY's product line of progressive cavity sewage grinder pumps. At that time the Vortex Pump Company made the decision that the product had to go through extensive redesign to correct a number of flaws in the V-1000 in order to sell a state of the art progressive cavity sewage pump.

The V-2000 is truly a fully submersible grinder pump and all electrical components were moved from the pump housing to the control cabinet except the starter capacitor.

Today Quality Control is exemplified in the meticulous testing of the VORTEX components, separately, as well as the finished system, prior to shipping.

VORTEX people take a personal approach to service, doing more by addressing its customers problems as its own. Sales and engineering personnel are always available for consultation, far beyond the time of sale.
