Cloudy water but passed OCLT

After successfully slamming my pool about 6 weeks ago I have been over-testing my water to ensure I maintained my water chemistry. Everything seemed to be quite stable but woke up to some cloudy water yesterday, so ran an OCLT last night and my FC was only down 1 ppm and my CC remains at zero. Technically I passed the test, but how do I resolve the cloudy water?

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Any thing added to the pool that can create cloudy water? Calcium, soda ash, baking soda, etc?

If not, follow the SLAM Process. Three criteria, you fail one. Check every area that might be holding algae.

3 days ago I added 27 oz of stabilizer (CYA now at 70) and 35 oz of baking soda. Other than that, it’s been recently limited to liquid bleach and muriatic acid.
