It is easier to explain than to type it all out you can call me at 586-625-2300
we have never had any issues with water clarity
in general I will say you are not filtering enough in normal mode

Can you clean your sells? Give that a try ... dont over salt your pool.
If you still have a question, consult your pool supplier. They are nice people.

First of all 91 is low salt content not too much
Are you checking your salt level with a test strip
You need to be at 3000ppm anything under 2800ppm can trigger an alarm and not produce enough chlorine.
Same thing if you are over 3600ppm
all manuals just give you an amount to start with but it is up to you to fine tune it
After adjustments you need to filter only for 24 hours before trying to generate chlorine

A few things to do or you will create your own problems.
First and for most you must filter for at least 12 hours after adding salt to distribute the salt completly
You can not just blindly ad salt like you said you added a bag.
Although the manuals have an amount of salt for different size pools it is just a starting point. It is up to you tp fine tune
you must get a salt test kit
the kind that reads #'s not color
Get your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible
any lower than 2700 and you will get a low salt alarm and you will also not be producing enough chlorine
any higher than 3500 and you can go cloudy, trigger high alarm, and the water will taste nasty
you can even trigger low salt with too much salt content
So remember 3000ppm
If you are higher than the 3500 then drain 20% water and fill with fresh
continue this until you get to close to 3000
If low follow directions for low salt either on the test directions or bag of salt
I have had my system for this being the 4th season and have never cleaned the cells
any way, when you get the pool to around 3000 filter only for about 12 hours then turn on your generator
It should work fine
