About GT Water Machines

GT Water Machines closes the gap between large wastewater companies and small brewing system providers by offering purpose-built, specialized machines that divert waste and increase profit.

Our services are defined by our expertise in both specialized wastewater design, and brewing system design.

About Trevor Harmon

I started GT Water Machines Inc. in 2016. After signing off from my gig leading the transition of a top craft brewing system provider, I knew three things:

  • I wanted to do my own thing
  • I loved designing and building cool machines
  • I loved working with water

But what would bring all of those things together?

I outfitted my garage with tools (a TIG welding machine, plasma machine, cold saw, and more) and started playing. My Garage Therapy soon led to an a-ha moment and less than one year later, we had patents filed and were testing equipment in the field.

Since then, we’ve applied a common-sense approach to wastewater, brewing and even coffee roasting equipment. As GT Water Machines grows, we endeavour to work only with those dedicated to their craft, to build unique machines that do great work, and to have fun along the way.
