I used Permatex High tack sealant, vs RTV to seal gasket. But I think either work fine for waterpump.
High Tack is made for use w/ most gaskets.
Don't use RTV on most Gaskets.
There's some exceptions but above work on many parts.
A common exception is many oil pan sets. You often need some RTV at spot where two parts of gasket splices or overlap.
Some gaskets are installed totally Dry. If you use any sealer then very likely will have problems.
Duke intake manifold is one.
Duke normal valve cover gasket can use High Tack but Felpro best gasket goes dry.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
