Can a pool pump be damaged by a large amount of peeling paint being passed through the system?

My neighborhood pool was repainted this Spring. The paint job was completed in three phases. The first layer was done last fall, the majority of the second layer was done this Spring when the pool was empty but the company ran out of paint. The final section of paint was applied with the pool 90% full. The paint began to peel in large chunks in the area painted last and spread throughout the entire pool. There are paint chips throughout the pump, the pump basket ,and the entire filtration and heating system. Can these paint chips damage the heating, pumping, and filtration systems?
