Get a new O-ring that goes from the pump onto the water tube from honda, cant cost more than a few dollars.

unless you pinched the O-ring that goes around the water pump where it meets the block, that is the only thing that could make it leak.

Make sure that the pipe doesn't have a crack it it beneath the o'ring. I've had this happen before. Also I have had to replace several of these pipes on different hondas because the acidic antifreeze ate the lip of the pipe off and it continues to leak antifreeze, Honda keeps these in stock because of this problem.
