Sprinkler and killing grass

Hi all,

Just looking for some practical advice. I've had new turf laid.... if i leave this sprinkler and hose in the same place for a few days (if i'm not around to move it) will this kill the grass (or cause issues)?

Any ideas on raising the sprinkler and hose pipe off the grass if necessary?

It's a Gardena ZoomMaxx sprinkler.

    It won't kill the grass in a few days, but there will be a yellowing of the grass where it has been covered.  It will recover quickly.

    Is it heavy?
    If not could you fashion some stiff wire to raise it slightly. A couple of days should not be a problem as KT said.
    But if it bothers you or you may be away longer, a few lengths of strong stiff wire wrapped around the frame then pushed into the ground would make less of an impression, and it does not need to be high. But more length into the ground in case the force of the water spray makes it move? Not familiar with your sprinkler.
    A wire plant hoop/frame you get to hold clumps of plants up might be re purposed or do?
