Can Bamboo (rhizomatous) damage a fibreglass swimming pool?

Our neighbours have a smallish patch of bamboo against their back boundary. We are about to put a fibreglass pool in our backyard that will be about 2 meters from the boundary fence. Currently, the bamboo shoots emerge on our side of the fence and I cut and poison them as necessary. We are intending to get the bamboo removed as soon as possible but are curious as to whether it could in fact damage our pool. Having neighbours control the bamboo on their side is likely to be a constant battle.
