lower circulating pump gasket

I just had a home inspection done. The inspector noted that the lower ciruclating pump gasket was deteriorated (gas hot water system) and that the gasket should be replaced. How difficult is this and how much would having someone do this cost?

If it's just a flange gasket and you are a mediocor handyman it should be no problem. If it's not activly leaking it will wait till spring.

If its just the flange gasket, its only a few dollars. Hopefully its just the gasket and not the flange itself. The hardest thing would be to bleed the system of air, if you never done this before.
