Can roots from Banana Plant damage pool or planter

We planted what was a very small banana plant behind our pool last year. It is now quite huge with a 14" diameter trunk. We have no idea how deep the roots go.

The planter behind the pool has a 12-14" portion for the pool on the south end and is cinder block on the other three sides. Is there a risk of harm to the pool if the banana plant roots spread? I am told the queen palm is no problem but want to remove the banana plant if it is going to be a problem.
