Question about Water Water Heaters
If it is a Gas Water Heater, you need to relight the pilot. If it is electric, I have never seen a reset on a tank. There is just the single or double element and a thermostat.
Check the breakers again, sometimes they look closed but they are slightly away. Pull the breaker on the heater all the way off and then all the way on until it clicks.

If you're having to reset the breaker, then most likely you have a bad heating element. Usually the bottom element burns out first, however if you had the water off, and the level dropped in the tank, the heater might have come on without water in it. This will cause it to overheat and burn out. Now when you turn the breaker on, the current is going to ground, tripping the breaker. If you are handy you can replace them, but be sure water heater electric is off or disconnected, and then drain water below the element level. While you're replacing one element replace them both.
