About 2 years ago, my power steering reservoir belched fluid out. Not sure how it happened. But did leave a mess on garage floor. There were no signs of any leaks or bad power steering hoses. I added fluid back to the proper level, and had zero issues since. Yes the power steering reservoir sits low. I use a flash light to shine on the reservoir to aid in checking fluid level. There is 'minimum and maximum' level lines on fluid canister. Hope this helps some.
