This can be a handful of things, to include bacterial blooms. I would run activated carbon and it should clear up.

It should. Activated carbon removes impurities from the water column. Cloudy water, that is white and most likely a bacterial bloom, will be addressed when it is removed by the carbon. You have to make sure that it is activated carbon as all carbon isn't created equal.
If the cloudy water was green it would have been an algae bloom. Though one could attempt activated carbon here as well, it would more likely be solved with something like a UV sterilizer.
