Our Answer:

When doing this kind of conversion, you would need the following products: Simpson DuraLiner Slip Connector and Hanger for Dura liner 6 inch Pipe DuraTech All-Fuel Masonry Chimney DuraLiner Transition Plate - For Chimney Pipes with a 6-Inch Inner Diameter DuraTech All-Fuel Stainless Steel Chimney Pipe - 6-Inch Inner Diameter You would first attach the slip connector to your flexible liner, then mount the assembly using the provided hanger to the mounting plate. The plate would then be secured to the top of the chimney and you would build your factory built system from there. The only issue I see is the diameter of your liner. Unfortunately, we do not have a 5" slip connector, as this is not a commonly used size for this type of situation. You would need to have a sizing collar fabricated out of sheet metal to mate the collar to the bottom of the slip connector, in order to use this setup.

In Response to Question:

I'm going to be tearing down the top portion of my chimney to about 3' below the roof line. I was planning to rebuild it in brick but wanted to consider a metal chimney option. I'd need some kind of conversion kit to transition from the brick to the metal. My chimney already has the flexible liner inside of a clay liner. The flex liner is 5" round. Do you have anything that would do the trick?
