Most sod farms and nurseries recommend to water thoroughly, then allow grass to dry. Keeping a grass wet all the time promotes disease and fungus problems. It's all about weather conditions period.

If you live in a hot dry arid type of climate, youíre going to need to water more often. If you live in a mild climate area, not going to have to water so much

For example, my route area, I run each valve, 15 minutes, 3 times a week. However, where I own a rental property, I have to run each zone 10 minutes each valve, 2 times a day, every day during the summer months. Why the difference, my route area, average temps stay in the mid 70's, my rental, high 90's to over 100 degrees.
