Does anyone know how to set a trigger delay of less than 30 seconds (the lowest option given in drop down menu) for Windows task scheduler? I want a delay of 5 seconds to give another task time to complete first. Evidently there is no way to daisy chain tasks so that they complete in succession to each other.

You can have them daisy chained. After the first task, schedule the 2nd task to trigger on the event created when the first task completes. The details get a little messy, but it's all explained very well here.
