It may be a result of extreme temperature changes from the time you tightened the shank until the time it broke however this is very unlikely.Typically the shank only needs to be tightened until it is stationary and immovable by normal operating stresses which is a very low torque value. As a general rule of thumb I use finger tight and an additional quarter turn. I once used epoxy and a short nipple to resolve the same issue but I had the advantage of having a pipe threading machine to fabricate the perfect size nipple and used a large washer and coupling to finish it off. If you try a new shank try tightening it as little as possible and I believe this will resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and I hope this is of assistance to you.

Remove the aerator at the end of the spout. It will unscrew and once off it will have a dime sized restricter in it that can be removed this restrict's the water down to about 1.6 gpm to save water.
It will either be plastic or metal and about the size of a dime with a small holw in it to let water pass by maybe 1/8" hole just remove it and put aerator back together.
Clean aerator screen out before you put it back together.
