Come on take it easy on me. its my 1st attempt with the whole planted tank thing. I thought i could come here for advice. maybe its experts only forum.
Well mean old me will help
Most folks tend to have limestone tap water wells or sources, perhaps they add more PO4 to the pipes for corrosion control, anyway, something reacts fairly well in the soil to produce the floc(Cloudy stuff).
I use ADA AS a lot and have not found much issues here, but it is likely tap water specific. Low KH's will help most folks. It'll go away with time and good plant growth, good root establishment. The NH4 is not an issues after 3-4 weeks anyway. The cycling will take care of it if the plants have not started to strongly by then either way.
Takes little getting use to, but the soil is really good. If you pant in it lightly, then you will not mash it up, think to grains as clay balls that you do not want to mash up too much, because that is what they really are, semi soft clay.
Some folks have used SeaChem Purigen for nagging issues(ADG as well), I use it, but more for tannin removal, this might help some.
Other than this, just be patient. It should go away.
You will want to do frequent large water changes the first 1-2 months.
Say 2-3x a week, 50% etc. This helps the plants, prevents algae and exports the NH4 and reactive components that cause the cloudiness faster.
BTW, you can also mineralize ADA AS prior to use.
Or use it in a Dry start method, which does the mineralization while the plants grow in and cycles by the time the aquarist fills the tank up.
After 3-4 weeks, the NH4 outer layer on the Grains of clay are depleted.
Same with any soils with NH4.
BTW, every single person here was new once, so we have all been right where you where are at now.
