Sounds like you're doing everything possible to help those azaleas settle in to their new homes. Daily watering is excessive, though, and can do more harm than good. Wean them off the daily watering by skipping every other day, then watering every third day then every fourth day. Your goal is to water deeply twice a week during the summer months and once a week the rest of the year. You can skip watering if you have a decent rainfall. Too much water can actually suffocate roots so it's important to water deeply but infrequently. Good luck with your azaleas!
