I lost my manual before even using the iron, can anybody tell me what are the first use instructions and some notes about using the iron?
I'll really appreciate it if somebody can upload the manual.

The reason that distilled water is suggested it is the mineral deposits that are in the water.
Any other kind of water than distilled has more, and possibly a lot more minerals than distilled.
That means, it might depend on how soon you can no longer use your iron, as it is clogged with mineral deposits.
How much minerals are in the spring water is anybody's guess, some more, some less.
God bless your efforts.
Please don't take Landsend advice, as it contadicts this whole "fixya" site! Let's keep it going by not giving in to this throw away world! Some people can't afford a $20 iron @ Wally's! All the solutions above (besides Landsend) are on it!! Your City water is still too, hard for these delicate, devices. Filtered, as Alan Serna mentioned, is the way to go!! Dump your water out of your iron, when not using-maintenance is key, for everything, even your families!! : ) Have a G8 day!
Straight from the manual: http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf
Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank. Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum. Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting. Once heated, unplug iron. Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body. Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.
Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body. • Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate. • Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.) Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping. • Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.
