    I should think  it's more than outgrown the pot if it's 17 years old

    Hostafan is correct.  They should also be divided every few years, to keep them healthy and to help promote flowering.  It's also good to give them some aquatic fertiliser every year.  We use special pellets on ours, we shove them into the soil in each of our water lilly pots.
