I would look at how the loads are connected to your 120 vac load center. The only reason I can think that a shorted water heater would trip the main 50 amp breaker without tripping its own breaker is...

If the black tank flush connection has a check valve at the hose connection, it cannot drain back out of that connection. And if you have removed the vacuum breaker valve as many of us have, it will...

The water heater should not have tripped the 50 amp breaker. There should be a 20 amp breaker specifically for the water heater that would trip well before the 50 amp main breaker. I am thinking you...

I agree that everyone should do what works best for them. And try different ways to see if one works better. For me the winterizing port works great. And flushing antifreeze out of my fresh water...
