What about using a device that measures the distance of the water from
the top the same way photo cameras measure the distance to focus ?
There are also devices on the market ( measuring tapes) that measure
the distance of an object by using the reflected sound.
The name for the device is Sonar and it was developed by polaroid.
"The 6500 Series is an economical sonar ranging module that can drive
all Polaroid electrostatic transducers with no additional interface.
This module, with a simple interface, is able to measure distances
from 6 inches to 35 feet. The typical absolute accuracy is (+-) 1% of
the reading over the entire range."
