I laid a pallet of St. Augustine sod on Memorial Day. I have been watering about a half inch every day. I have read that I need to water every day for two weeks and then cut back. But I was wondering if someone could give me some input on this info. Is what I am doing correct? Can someone lay me out a watering calendar all the way until the sod should be established? many thanks.....

Here's a schedule I pinched from http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/lawns/msg0313053426523.html

Week 1-2: Water 2-3x per day, 20min per zone or 1/4" of water each time.
Week 3: Water 1x per day
week 4: Water every other day - 1/2" water
Week 5 and ongoing water deeply and infrequently with 3/4-1" of water.

I agree. Deeply and infrequently is the rule. Deeply means 1 inch at least when you do water. Infrequently means monthly during the cool months with transition to weekly by July. The soil should dry out completely between waterings once you're on this program. However, the grass should not dry out. If the grass dries out before you water, then you need to water longer when you water.

Last week I tested my sprinkler for the first time. I used a cat food can to catch the water. It took 3.5 hours to capture 1/2 inch of water from my oscillating sprinkler set on full sweep. That is just what I thought I was getting but I needed to know. If you have an in-ground system, you probably get water out faster than that in your zones. Be sure to measure and set your timer to water properly.
