Default Water pump on 95 accord

How can you tell if the water pump on a 95 accord is going bad, even if you
had the timing belt changed. I just purchased this 95 accord from my boss,
he just bought it from his sister, she has included the receipts of all
the work that was done on this car before she sold it. Every major thing
was done on this car according to the receipts. but there's a noise that I
keep hearing, it has a humming squeeky sound while the ignition is on.
Someone please tell me what I should do, because I have taken it to four
different machanics. The first three said that the water pump is going
bad, the fourth one said that it has something to do with rpm or the
aircondition system.

Turn off the ignition.

Blower fan? Radiator fan? Turn the radiator fan off by cycling the ignition
on/off. The water pump shouldn't work when the engine is off.

====================

Mileage is needed?

If you get even a drop of water / coolant leaking out of the bottom of
the timing belt cover, the pump seal is shot, and failure of the bearing
in the pump is soon to follow. Engine destruction happens shortly after
because the timing belt drives the pump and the valve cam(s).

Ignition means an electrical system that provides the spark, not exactly a
running engine. The sound of a bad pump bearing (usually course or squeaky)
should come directly from inside the valve cover. If the squeaks are coming
from the distributor then that can also leave you stranded. Try Honda coolants.
They are known to provide some water pump bearing protection.
