Squealing belt

About six months ago my water pump wnet out. So i replaced it with no problem, but i replaced the belt as well. Then it starting squealing. So after trouble shooting many different things (Idler pully, belt tension, etc.) It still was squeaking. So i replaced the belt again (from autozone) but it continued to squeal. So i did some reasearch and i read to get a belt from NAPA, That solved the problem for about 3 months, but i came back just the other day. I've tried everything. Could i get an expert opinion? Please help, thanks!

Welcome and hi!
Ok tell us about your rig. Year, make, model, engine.
What's the sound like? Does it go away with increased rpm? How old is your battery and alternator?
Is the belt too tight? Is there a small leak maybe? Could be hitting the belt.
Sorry for so many questions but it helps us get our heads around it.

Hello!
1994 Wrangler 4.0L 6cyl.
It chirps like (squeak, squeak, squeak, etc.) with only about a half a second between. It stays like that for about a solid 30 minutes while driving then goes away. But comes back when engine sits for about 15-20 minutes. The battery an alternator are no more than a year old. The only way tightening the belts on YJ's are by loosening the power steering pump and tightening one of those bolts, so its kind of guessing on the tightness. Im not seeing any leaks.

It maybe a bad belt or maybe one if the pulleys has a bearing going out.

I replaced the belt about 3 months ago. But I ordered a new one from crown automotive, I'm going to give that a shot. Thanks for the help, I'll keep you updated.
