Passed OCLT and no CC's but still a bit of turbidity

After 2 days of SLAM and lots of brushing and changing skimmer socks, the pool is looking a lot better and passed the OCLT last night (evening FC 11.0, morning FC 10.5, no CCs) pre-SLAM #'s are pH 7.9 (added 8 oz acid), TA 95, CYA 45, CH 250. Water looks mostly clear but when I brush the walls/floor a little bit of fine light brownish dust gets stirred up and the water looks a little bit turbid. Is that most likely dead algae and/or pollen or is more SLAM in order?

If you passed your OCLT keep the FC at the top of your range, brush daily, and keep the pump and filter going 24/7 until its clear. You can add a little DE to the sand filter to help it filter a little finer.
