Anti-Freeze Dripping from water pump

Hey Guys, just wanted to see if any of you knew if a little dripping out of the drain hose for the water pump was normal on a 2008 rhino 700? I recently noticed about a two inch water stain on the concrete in the garage underneath the Rhino. I looked around and noticed it appeard to be coming out of the small drain line attached to the waterpump. I had just checked thru the unit a couple of days before and noticed that I was low on coolant, so I topped it off, in doing so I squeezed on the hoses to see if there was any air in the lines, I may have done this with the cap to the radaiator on. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

agreed, you can get a kit or new pump, new pump is easier to replce than the kit.

it is prettty easy, but you will want to drain the oil and coolant first. and it will be easier to see if you pull the fuel tank as well.
