Question Ballast Bag Keeps Emptying

Still pretty new to my 2000 PS 205V. Just completed my first 10 hours today. I have the ballast bag that runs down the center of the boat (where the ski locker is). The bag seems to fill OK. After a few minutes however, the bilge pump comes on (I keep it in Auto when on the lake) frequently and pumps quite a bit. After 3 or 4 cycles, I look at the ballast bag, and its pretty empty. If I refill bag, same thing happens. If I do not refill the bag, the bilge pump runs much less frequently.

Have I got a leaky bag? How could I test the bag (fill with air?)? Bad connector? Could it be a faulty bilge switch causing the bag to empty? Does the bag normally empty through the bilge hole? Thanks for any suggestions about what to look at first, second etc.
