Hire an electrician. The breaker needs to be replaced or the wiring in your house is not able to handle it. I believe most need 2-30amp breakers.

I would say you have a bad element in the bottom.If the water is cold and heat until the top thermostat reach it tempture,then switch the bottom element and then the breaker trip.So replace the bottom element.

Check the voltage at the water heater. Sounds like the element is burnt out and is tripping the breaker.
If it is more then 5 years old I would check.install a new heating element.
