I can run this direct from a pump rather than from the overflow pipe? Have a spare 600lt per hour pump and thought it woukd be a perfect flow for it?

Uv light is a vector v2 600 and pump is eheim compact 600

Not looked at how much flow that UV needs, but yes, you can run them off a separate pump.  It's common to run them off the return pump (one lot of heat, and generally more efficient than smaller pumps).
