No, not for health or plumbing reasons. Many consumers believe that their water must be softened in order to prevent damage to plumbing and fixtures. This is untrue. The average water hardness in Round Rock is 187 mg/L or approximately 11 grains per gallon. While this level of hardness may cause minor aesthetic problems such as water spots and dry skin, it does not cause damage to plumbing.

Yes, if the City is under Stage 1 or Stage 2 water restrictions, you can wash your vehicle at your residence on your designated outdoor watering day, during the allowed times, or you can take it to a commercial car wash facility any time. However, if Stage 3 water restrictions are in effect, vehicles can only be washed at a commercial car wash between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Commercial car washes are not restricted during Stage 1 or Stage 2 water restrictions because they're more efficient than washing a vehicle at a private residence. They capture and treat the dirty, soapy water onsite, or through the wastewater lines, rather than letting the water drain into the stormwater system, which is what happens when vehicles are washed at home. The commercial equipment uses more pressure and less gallons of water per minute than home washes, so overall they use less water per vehicle.
