Help, with newer-ish sod

So we just had our home built and the sod was laid in January. It was a horrible job to say the least, the builder sub-contracted it out to the lowest bidder.

Well I was able to pull it from a brown mess to a lush emerald green carpet. All it took was a ton of water and some starter fertilizer 18-24-6.

Now about 60% of my yard is floratam the rest is Bahia. The Bahia isnt under irrigation so it isn't really an issue as I know when the rains come it will green back up.

The floratam is causing me problems. So I treated the yard with an anitfungal granule treatment as well as some weed and feed 29-0-10.

The antifingal was about a month or more ago because of what I thought was dollar spot, well it really didn't do much so about 2 maybe 3 weeks ago I reapplied the weed and feed. Still no improvement. Not sure what direction to take it in, I don't want to pay someone to do my yard as I'd rather do it on my own.

Also I water each zone for 30 mins twice a week and I've applied a "all in one pesticide" about 3 months ago. Here are some pictures of what it's doing. It's all turning yellow, almost straw like and thinning all over the yard.

Yes because it's getting worse. I'm getting close to calling the pros. :(
How does it look compared to the people around you?
