Measuring salt heigth in tank with water. Measure through water or detect water above salt.

I'm looking for solutions for measuring the salt heigth in a tank filled with water and salt (softener tank).

Water level can be higher or lower than salt level. Are there any non-contact sensors that can differentiate between water and salt?

Or distance sensors that measure the salt through the water?

All help is welcome.

how about install this sensor near the bottom of the tank.   It should read DRY when the water level falls below the sensor.

Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to avoid drilling holes in the tank and not sure the product would survive the conditions in the salt/water tank, which is extremy corrosive.

I was thinking about using a huskylens. Could it destinguish water being above the salt level?

Huskylens don't differentiate between the salinity of the water, and the AI camera isn't powerful enough to get this done.
