Yeah it does stop the water. It's more like a temporary "pause" though, because if you hold it too long the pressure will force some to eventually drizzle out.

No, because it's complete different idea. Tiny water stream clean up all hidden spaces in your mouse. I use it 2-4 times a day for 5! years and can't live without it.
Also my gum stop bleeding aftrer first week. You can brush and floss your mouth few times, but right after it you use water pick and find plenty of food residue in sink.

No, it does not. The motion of the water flow would not be compatible with a brush. This "squirts" water out of the hose and attachment to remove food particles between the teeth.

The unit I got came with a few different attachments.

From the images on the box, I woudld think they come pretty standard. These include: Plaque Seeker, Classic Jet, Toothbrush, Orthodontic, Pik Pocket, & Tounge cleaner.

Keep in mind though that the heads are all really small, and you should still use an actual toothbrush (with toothpaste) and not just the Water Pik alone.

It's a stiffer plastic that is coiled. It is able to extend due to this coiling. It is not a rubber like, say a rubber gasket or those rubber pencil cushions (sorry, can't think of better examples just now).
