Water until it feels spongy. Do it in the evening, or even twice a day if very hot.

It is best to water heavily in the early AM (4 to 6:00). This lets the water soak in before it evaporates. If you need to lightly water in the afternoon to keep the sod from drying out, that's fine.
Pull back the corner of a couple of pieces of sod. If the soil underneath is dry, water more. If it is damp, you're fine.
