My pool has been crystal clear until about 2 days ago 😕
Here are my test results
FC 3 (I added bleach to raise this)
CC 0
TC 3
TA 90
CYA 80
CH 150
PH 6.8-7.2
SALT 2800
TEMP 84
I know my ph is low, could this be causing cloudy water? Also, my salt keeps dropping... I’m still trying to figure this out. Should I add salt?

I appreciate any advice! TIA

Your cloudy water is a result of the FC falling. You might also check the salt level requirement for your SWG. I would increase the FC to about 10 ppm today and through the evening. Monitor the water condition tomorrow. If it's still cloudy, increase the FC again and consider an Overnight Chlorine Loss Test. If the water doesn't get better or you fail the OCLT, a SLAM Process may be next.
