you can  gently squash the 150mm into more of an oval shape if your flue is too small in one direction. thats what we ended up doing and it worked a treat!

Be sure to get it fitted to the standards and by a registered artisan, insurance could be an issue if you don't.

I daresay that 125 mm for the diameter of a flue liner is fine but the regulations state that 150mm is the standard for a new installation. 

The answer could be to fit it yourself in that case.

I think you will find plenty of people out there with 125mm flue liners.

I don't think it's a recent rule-when we had a new stove fitted in 2010 the installer mentioned it then.

Thanks Fitter. Is this something new? Stoves and flue available in 125 but I'm not allowed to use it - even when I can't fit 150 through my chimney - aarghh!!! Don't know what to do now.

Yes - I think he is correct by the rules as all new installations must have 150mm flues.

Even if the outlet on the stove is smaller - sounds daft but that's the rules.
