    I'd try duct seal. Its a pliable sealant that doesn't harden up nor permanently stick. Very cheap and would be effective in this situation and easily removed when needed.

    I have one of those. It will work to rinse ok, but it has very low pressure, and not alot of water comes out. So I wouldn't worry about too much pressure.

    Just cut and solder one wire at a time. Be very careful about shorting the battery out. Also use a large soldering tip.
