There are several types of pools in English, for example a natural pool of water perhaps in part of a river. Is there a Danish word for that?

You could use pøl or vandpyt for pools or puddles.

Adding to miacomet's answer, there's also dam and vandhul (waterhole) which are a bit bigger. A widening of a river could be called en bredning (literally just 'a widening').

Could you provide an explanation of 'dam'?

It means pond. We even use the expression "På den anden side af dammen" = "Across the pond" to refer to the Atlantic.

The pronunciation if svømmebassinet is problematic. The accent is wrongfully put on 'ba' in 'bassinet'
