Put a fill cap at the top of your res using the top of a soda bottle, and you will be able to check the water level from that.

Perfectly air tight. No leaks at all. I had to use a res this size because it is the smallest one my pump would fit in.

this is probably somewhat harder than slipknots suggestion, but here goes:

get long rectangle piece of plexi-glas or the like to use as a gauge. Dremel or razorblade and drill out a rectangle shape into the side of your res. Epoxy or (insert your favorite sealant here) the plexi window into the side. Then you can tell the water level.

Thought it wouldn't provide a way to fill it, just to check the level....
