    I am not familiar with bag filters for a pool. Do you have a link to a product?

    Here are the three main filter types used in the US. Pool School - Pool Filter Comparison

    Those are intended to be drinking water filters and cannot support enough water flow or debris filtration to effectively filter a pool. You would probably have to change the cartridge daily.

    I know of someone who changed their sand filter and replaced it with one
    With a small bather load indoor pool and were quite happy with it
    If it isn't widely used I won't bother looking further
