The seed needs to have a little cover, especially in full afternoon sunny areas,, and should have a bit of loose soil underneath to set root in... the soil overall needs to perculate water rather than puddle...

If your aerating or slit seeding accomplishes these criteria,,, then you have a shot at the new grass... If a client is watering compacted soils 2-3 times per day, you still have garbage for turf, and lousy germination...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
