99 F350 Power Steering Fluid

About a month ago I noticed my power steering fluid had a milky color to it, so I flushed the system. Looked at the fluid today and it has milky color again.
Its only been a month since it was flushed. Anybody know what is causing the fluid to become milky?
Thanks

Are you using ATF?

Milky is usually a sign of water, That wouldn't be good

Yes, I am using ATF. Where would water be entering the system?

Would water enter from air in the system? Looks like a closed loop.

Check the o-ring on the fill cap.

It can only enter at the cap. Most of the system is pressurized ,so it would leak. Are you missing any part of the inner fender well. Water can splash up from the tire on to the cap.
