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.

Performance Platinum 40 Gal. Tall 12-Year 36,000 BTU High Efficiency Liquid Propane Water Heater is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 509.
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 5 out of 5 by from Rheem Hot Water Gas Review Since owning my Rheem hot water heater I have had no issues. Unlike my old hot water heater (same size replacement), the Rheem has plenty of hot water for my family. I have had to do nothing to it after installing it. It is quiet and after having it for a year I can say it is reliable. The only down side to having replaced my old water heater with the Rheem, is the increased water consumption due to my teenage children enjoying a long hot shower and never wanting to get out to the shower because of the lack of hot water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok. Not sure how to determine if it's great We bought this hot water heater when our previous one failed (like many other people). It provides hot water but it seems I need to keep the temperature on the unit higher than it should be. We have also noticed that every so often we will hear water running for about 5 seconds or so. We have not been able to determine where this water is going; maybe into the hot water heater or humidifier. I'd like to provide a better review but I just don't know how to judge this unit. It works or it doesn't. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great. The water heater works as advertised and I am well pleased with its performance. My only complaint is that the temperature control knob is too small and is difficult to set a desired temperature. For example, every time I reset the temperature knob from "vacation" mode to a normal setting, I have to adjust the temperature setting several times to achieve the desired hot water temperature at the tap. A larger temperature control knob with graduated markings would be a helpful improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Replacement I bought this 40-gallon Rheem water heater 1 year ago and installed it myself as a replacement for a 40-gallon Mor Flo "Nautilus" water heater I installed in my home 32 years ago. I really liked the simplicity and very high efficiency of the "Nautilus" which was rated at 85% because of the combustion chamber was surrounded by the water. However, after searching for several years, I concluded that the Mor Flo "Nautilus" is no longer made. Shopping around, I determined this Rheem model was the best choice to replace my aging water heater, in fact, it's an excellent choice. I"m glad I did make the replacement, since I had not replace the anode rod in that 32-year old water heater, plus a large amount of mineral deposites were accumulating after all those years. Would I recommend this Rheem model to a friend or relative? YES !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good So Far This water heater replaced a Rheem Performance Platinum water heater installed six months ago. That water heater completely rusted out at the two water inlet/outlet nipples and leaked water into the inside of the water heater and therefore had to be replaced under warranty. When the current water heater was installed, the plumber advised to replace the steel nipples with brass nipples--a cost that was not covered by the warranty. I have had the current water heater now for three months and it seems to be working properly without any leaks. My experience with the first Performance Platinum water heater was extremely disappointing. Rheem should upgrade the factory installed nipples from steel to brass. I can only hope that the current water heater will last at least to the end of the advertised 12 year warranty--time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy Install. HOT WATER Old water heater began leaking on a cold Sunday morning. Purchased this Rheem, easily installed with a friend who owns his own HVAC, plumbing and electrical business. He directed me on what to do and it was very simple and straightforward. Had hot water within an hour of install. Total job time including going to Lowes to buy the Rheem, calling friend for help, removal of old unit and installation of the new one was approximately 3 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm loving this water heater I've had this installed for about 6 month now. With our older unit we could only take 2 showers then wait for the heater to catch up. Now all 4 in our family can shower back to back. Including my wife and 2 kids that take scalding hot showers. We had company stay with us over the Christmas holidays which added 6 more to our house for a few days. Even then we never ran out of hot water. I'm very happy with my decision.
