    I agree if it is the water pump you can isolate it by removing the belt to see if the noise is still there when the pump has stopped. You could also use the long screwdriver method to listen to different parts of the engine to see if you can isolate its position. It is basically like using a stethoscope. You put the sharp end against the part you wish to listen to and the handle to your ear. If it is the water pump you will hear it using this method.
    Sometimes finding a noise like this can require a bit of elimination work. Replace or fix the cheapest part first slowly working your way up to major parts until you find it. One part at a time though.
