I sense you are over zealous. Over anxious.
Why the water meter?
You need to use some logical self judgement I think. It sounds like your lawn is over wet
Let your lawn be for a spell. As I explained earlier, I too had ideas of a perfect lawn so I understand the fastidiousness involved. Almost the obsession of it
Watering the scorched area again will now do nothing to green it. Wait and see if grass responds. If it dies there lightly rake it out, scratch the soil itself and re seed. I would not reseed it right now though ...see how it is in a week's time.
I really domt think the grass will scorch if watered during the day but why do it then? Evening is best because there is less evaporation that's all.
You can overfeed .....well, as you can with everything......grass and this simply makes it susceptible to disease.
