Stratified Tank Fluid Volume Monitoring

I'm trying to use the stratified storage vessel to model a system that gets water pumped in, gets heated, then has water pumped out. After simulating (and during the simulation of the control logic) I need to measure the fluid volume in the tank. All the outputs in my simulation tab (Dymola) give me the tank volume. How do I measure fluid volume over time that is currently in the tank?

Well an interesting way would be to include the height of water in the stratified water tank while defining the energy balance of the water tank,you use it to calculate the amount of water present at time t. This way after the simulation you can see that the heinght of water changes over time, this is an indication of the water level. But to notice changes you need a demand.
