To American ears, "toilet", when used in mixed company (a group of men and women)
As for as "Please no swimming", I don't understand the joke.
I have, however, seen signs that have read "Welcome to Our Ool. Notice that there is no P in it. Let's keep it that way." The joke is that pool is being spelled ool. The name of the letter P is the same as an informal way to say urine: pee.
Also, I have seen signs reading "We don't swim in your toilet, don't pee in our pool."
