Cloudy water

I recently added some crushed coral into my sump because i was told that it helps keep the Ph up. I rinsed it quite well (or so i thought) but it still made my water very cloudy. I figured after a few days it would be gone and as of now its been around 2 1/2 days. I really have no idea what to do to clear it up so if anyone has any advice i would be more than happy to give it a try. thanks for the input.

Multiple partial water changes should work.
