What Harold means is a flexable liner (pipe) that is approved by your local code. If 5" is coming off of your flue collar, then the size of the liner should be 5 inches. Manufacturers frown on reducing. Natural gas and propane require aluminum liners. Wood stoves require stainless steel. A common manufacturer name is Z-FLEX. It comes with the liner, the flashing for the top of the chimney and the cap. You need 100% silicone caulk to secure the flashing.
