You can use a piece of string or pretty much anything else... the zip ties work well, but are wasted IMHO, since you can't re-used them generally.
By the way, I rebuilt a spare water pump just a couple of nights ago. When putting in the new impellor, I tried a trick that I think you recommended a couple of months ago. I put a plastic zip tie around the impellor before sliding it in place. Worked like a charm.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
