Welcome to the forums!

9lbs of baking soda should have RAISED your TA by about 48ppm, not lowered it. High calcium and TA can cause cloudiness in the water. I'd recommend you post your actual numbers. The "conventional wisdom" numbers you see most places are wrong, and many of the numbers interact. Post your pH, TA, and CH at least.

I deleted your first post since you reposted with info.
