Leaking Fresh Water Pump

This new to me 2008 Southwind 36D
has a small leak from the top of the Fresh Water Pump.
Does anyone know if there is a gasket/seal kit available for these or am I stuck buying a new pump.

Suggestions?

Not all these pumps are created equally.
What make and model is your pump?

Some are, some aren't! For what they cost just replace it but shop first. I once used a fertilizer pump purchased from a farm store while camping. Have since sold the coach but that pump is still going strong. Shop before buying!

Thanks. I will shop around a bit. There doesn't seem to be as many suppliers here in Canada.

Leaking Fresh Water Pump

UPDATE:

Removed the pump and decided to try to repair myself before spending the $ on a new one.

Removed the 5 Phillips screws holding the top cover to the pump. Inside I found the casing and diaphragms with lots of hard water/calcium deposits. Cleaned with green ice machine cleaner. A very powerful calcium dissolver. Flushed with clean water. Then I added a little but if RTV silicone to the casing where in mates together as there was no gasket. Just a mechanical seal. Be careful not to get any on the diaphragm.
Reinstalled the pump and tested. So far no leaks.
