Can drinking water help lower my blood pressure?

Hydration is good. Sure. Being adequately hydrated is really important for good health. If by drinking water, you are drinking less of calorie laden drinks that will make you overweight and more prone to hypertension, then yes that will help. I don't think there's a direct correlation between water and lowering bp, but certainly an overall healthier option.

Can an increase in water decrease blood pressure?

generally not. The body's blood pressure is a function of the amount of space available for blood, and the amount of blood in the body. Believe it or not, the amount of blood is regulated far more by salt than by water. Generally speaking, the only way water would decrease blood pressure is it your body were substantially retaining salt and the extra water cause the body to decrease certain hormones.
