Both of my pools have had it. It's called "Adult Swim" though. I live in NC. I hated it as a kid, especially an older kid but I love it now that I am a mom.

It's when my kids get fresh sunblock, snack or lunch and hydrated.

I've never heard the term "Saftey Break" I did most of my swimming as a kid in Wyoming and very much remember the the Adult swim. Oh I hated that time!

we were never allowed to stop watching the pool during adult swim. We couldn't even leave the deck if someone was in the fenced area.

We weren't either. However, we were able to reduce the number watching the deck and the occasional adult in the water. So about 1/2 the guards got a chance to get a break. The other 1/2 would go on the next swim break.

I worked at a pool where our rest in the rotation was watching the deck (so there was no real break).

Weird. Not at my outdoor pool in Mass. Practices must vary pretty widely.
