I use R/O water exclusively. The ph is generally in spec. This is the only clarity issue I've dealt with in a significant amout of time.

I believe very strongly that dryhopped beers frequently have a hop haze associated with it. It takes a long time to clear out IME.

Crystal clear, and vegan if that is a concern to (gelatin is NOT in case anyone was wondering).

I find dry hopped beers take much longer to clear. They seem to usually not clear as well as beers that were not dry hopped IMO. I also find beers that had a good cold break clear quicker and clearer. I just use gelatin and am happy with the results. Good luck!
