Energy Guide also states "Capacity (1st hour rating) : 68 Gallons"

The US Government Energy Guide PDF for the XP40T12HE36U0 linked from this page also states "Capacity (1st hour rating) : 68 Gallons". Why is that?
Asked by: Buck
So there you have it! ! Rheem has now said that BOTH the linked catalog Specification of 73 gallons the first hour AND the linked Energy Guide number of 67 gallons the first hour are CORRECT! Quite an accomplishment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never run out of hot water! We bought this about 2 years ago when our old 30gal whatever brand unit went and had it's "water break" all over the basement floor. We then upgraded to this lovely 50gal unit and we haven't run out of hot water yet! We have it set low to save on cost a bit more, but we're a family of 5. Even when we're giving the girls tubs and my son jumps in the shower after, (right before I'm about to) I used to hesitate thinking of the lack of hot water available, but I was soon proved wrong by our new larger water heater. Our heat control did stop working for us a little under a year old, but they sent us out the new unit free of charge, and I had it running again in no time. Never a problem since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with purchase - trouble getting anode out I replaced the original (12+ years old) water heater in our house on Oct 31, 2015 with this model (purchased from the big orange home improvement store). Usually I do a lot of research but time was limited due to a leak and my water heater is located in the attic (thank you Texas builders). Beyond the challenge of getting it into the attic I've had little issue with the water heater. I drained it one year after install and appreciate the location of the drain as it is not too close to the floor so it is easy to get a hose on it. My only complaint is I can't get the get the sacrificial anode out to check it, the nut holding it in place seems to be frozen - I'm going to have to look into it more.
