If you spilled any coolant on the belt in the process, it will have to be replaced and all the pulleys cleaned.

You could have a bad tensioner but I would more suspect it was routed incorrectly.

Thanks I will check that. Have a friend who suggested it might be the harmonic balancer?

It's possible but that would have had to have been there prior to the water pump.
