The way it sounds in GA they live on the hardpan over the entire state, and they do a lot of sand topdressing... 3/4 of an acre worth of sandy compost might be a lot, but I would start there... a thin layer that disappears under the grass when raked in would give the thatch something else to grow into other than its own dead body parts...

I would be reluctant to run a bulldozer over irrigation system,,, rather slowly add sand/compost to an important part of the yard and see if I can get an aerator through it by fall... if one area breaks through then you know how to expand into the rest of the yard...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
