I think the only way is to de-pressurize and see if the level is within sight on the tank. IMHO the level is "right enough" if:

- power-steering is working without hick-ups
- car is leveling nicely to high position (and the pump is shut down quickly)
- tank will not overflow when car is in low posision (or de-pressurized)

I think that's good advice as well. Particularly if the pump is switching on/off fairly quickly. I repaired a small cracked rubber pipe on the low pressure return at the weekend. Just a few mins and it was changed out and very little leak as well. As previously stated, no need to depressurise the system.

But now I'm thinking of replacing the corroded metal brackets holding the rear valve and spheres. A few of the metal sections near the rubber pipe are corroding now as well.
